Charming bloke is Jaime Alguersuari. You’d think Formula One drivers would get sick of sitting down in front of journalists on sponsor events, answering the same questions over and over again.

I’m sure deep down he felt like that in the four and a half minute chat I had with him last week, but he didn’t show it. He gave real thought to his answers and was surprisingly open about the adversity (money and good looks excluded) he’s come up against in his short F1 career to date.

Below are the answers to some of the questions you asked him through autocar.co.uk, Twitter and Facebook. Enjoy.

Evo_ermine – how much time do you spend at the Toro Rosso factory?Jaime Alguersuari – During the season we have so many commitments with racing, media and sponsors, so there’s never really time to go there. I’ll maybe go three or four times during the season.
