Jaime Alguersuari had a difficult weekend in Australia, although both qualifying and the race showed improved pace from both Toro Rosso cars. Jaime qualified 12th, which meant he missed out on the third and final quali session, unlike teammate Buemi.

Worse than that, the pair of them collided in the race, when Alguersuari made a good start and drove straight into the side of the other STR car. Team boss Franz Tost praised Buemi for continuing well, but said little about Jaime.

The Spaniard himself was relatively happy with what he achieved: "...I had an extra stop, which effectively ended my chances of getting a good result. I have to say my car worked well, with quite a good pace. I am pleased to have finished the first race and now we must look at what we can do to improve further for Malaysia."
