Buemi: I have to beat Alguersuari

Buemi: I have to beat Alguersuari

Sebastien Buemi is determined to stay ahead of his Toro Rosso team-mate Jaime Alguersuari this season.

Although he picked up a disappointing eight points for STR last season, Buemi managed to finish ahead of Alguersuari as the Spaniard could only manage five points.

The 22-year-old Swiss driver, who proved he is ready to step it up with a some of good times during the pre-season test in Jerez last week, says his major goal for this year is seeing off the challenge of his team-mate.

"In Bahrain, I have to be ahead of Alguersuari - in qualifying and the race," he is quoted by Swiss paper Blick. "But I'm not afraid that I am not faster than him. I have too much self-confidence, and have proved it in the past several times."

Buemi admits he has been putting in a lot of hard work during the off-season with Finnish physio Antti Kontsas. He has put on some extra muscle and proudly proclaimed "I am now 66 kilos".
