Jaime Alguersuari Brings Hong Kong A Taste Of F1

Posted on June 29, 2011 at 11:54 AM

After the exciting Grand Prix Du Canada and a well deserved best to date finish of eighth place, Jamie was off to Hong Kong for the Red Bull Dragon Run. There he drove the Red Bull show car in front of a crowd of more than 43,000 enthusiasts. After enthusing about the city and the car, Jamie was kind enough to answer some questions for the Log Book. When asked what it was like to get some seat time in the Red Bull car, ie. how it compares to the Toro Ross and does this mean he is being groomed for a possible place on the Red Bull team, he told us

"With a show run car you cannotreally tell much difference between the cars as they are not set up for racing... Doing the show run is not a step to drive for Red Bull Racing: we all sharethe job of doing show runs, me and the other F1 guys and Red Bull driversfrom other race categories."
