It is the 24th November 2010, and this is F1Minute.

There hasn’t been an enormous amount of news over the past two days, but boss of Toro Rosso, Franz Tost, has been talking quite a lot. First up, he’s been bigging up Jaime Alguersuari, with this: “I think that he learned this season how to set up the car, how to drive the car, and I’m looking forward to the next season because I think he has matured enough to continue improving himself.” Good news. No mention of Buemi though. Franz Tost did point out that for the team to do better, it’s not just about improvement from the drivers, but also the car. He admitted they’ve got a long off-season ahead, with lots of hard work to do over the winter. He added: “We have a lot of work in front of us, but hopefully all these tasks we have set up. we will find a successful solution for them.”

Finally, in non-Toro Rosso news, Mario Theissen has left as boss of BMW. They’re not in F1 anymore, but Theissen is stepping down before the manufacturer joins in the DTM series.
