Jaime Alguersuari is unhurt following his big crash towards the end of Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.

The Spanish teenager lost control of his Toro Rosso in the flat-out and infamous 130R corner, immediately reporting on the radio, "I'm ok".

Moments later, however, Alguersuari seemed light on his feet before laying down on an ambulance stretcher, apparently with a drip attached to his arm.

Team boss Franz Tost said: "He is uninjured, which is the most important thing."

However, the Toro Rosso chief admitted that the trip to Suzuka had been a "very expensive one" for the Faenza based team, after rookies Alguersuari and teammate Sebastien Buemi also crashed in qualifying.
