Toro Rosso is expected to announce on Monday morning that Spanish teenager Jaime Alguersuari will make his Formula One debut alongside fellow rookie Sebastien Buemi in Hungary this weekend.

Buemi, 20, told Switzerland's Blick newspaper that last Thursday's news of the departure of his 2009 teammate Sebastien Bourdais has not shaken him.

"Actually it makes no difference to me who I drive with," the Swiss youngster, who scored 1 more point than Frenchman Bourdais in the opening nine races of the season, said.

"My job is to drive the car as quickly as possible," Buemi added.

It is rumoured that Alguersuari will not be confirmed for the whole of the rest of the 2009 season, with rally world champion Sebastien Loeb linked with the seat for November's Abu Dhabi finale.
