Very recently, the 21-year-old was heavily tipped to make way at the Red Bull junior team for Daniel Ricciardo.

But the Spaniard Alguersuari then achieved consecutive points finishes in Canada and Valencia, reportedly spurring Red Bull's driver manager Helmut Marko to instead find a place at HRT for Ricciardo's mid-season debut.

At Toro Rosso, Alguersuari is now fully back in favour, with a third consecutive points finish at Silverstone compounding his new status.

According to Spanish sports daily AS, Marko and Alguersuari had a friendly wager before the British Grand Prix.

"If you score tomorrow (Sunday), I'll pay you double for the points you score, but if you don't, you give me a case of my favourite Spanish wine," Marko reportedly told the youngster.

It is believed Alguersuari still intends to buy Marko the wine.
