Jaime Alguersuari snr said the decision by Dr Helmut Marko to oust the young Spaniard after a strong season and at the age of 21 was "unfair and incomprehensible".

But "whoever killed him buried him badly," Alguersuari snr added, referring to his son's new full time roles as co-commentator on British radio and with Pirelli.

Alguersuari snr, who is involved with the organisation of the Renault World Series, said his son is due to test Pirelli's 2010 Renault test car next week.

According to EFE news agency, Alguersuari snr also said his son's career to date has been more impressive than Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, who are Toro Rosso's new drivers.
