Scuderia Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari learned from wheel-to-wheel dice
7 April 2010

F1 rookie Jaime Alguersuari has thanked Michael Schumacher for giving him a lesson in race-craft prior to his points-scoring run in Malaysia.

The Scuderia Toro Rosso driver took the first points of his career in Sepang, and told that the understanding he got from racing Schumacher wheel-to-wheel in Australia helped him.

"Michael showed me the way to drive a Formula One car on the limit, with other drivers," he said. "This was very important. To finish the Australian Grand Prix and to fight against him showed me the way - like how to be aggressive with other people.

"The race in Malaysia worked out like that with [Vitaly] Petrov and Nico [Hulkenberg]. They were amazing fights, both were clean, and that is the way to do it in Formula One."

    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
