Toro Rosso is not likely to trouble the points-scoring ranks on the "predictable" circuits like Malaysia.

That is the admission of Jaime Alguersuari, who battled throughout last Sunday's Australian Grand Prix with Michael Schumacher but ultimately lost the final championship point to the seven time world champion.

But ahead of this weekend's event at Sepang, which was the first of the modern breed of Hermann Tilke-designed circuits in F1, the 20-year-old Spaniard is not confident of a repeat of his Melbourne battle.

"At the permanent circuits, especially the wide, safe and predictable Tilke ones, right not we are not able to score," said Alguersuari, who was just a 1-year-old baby when Schumacher made his Grand Prix debut in 1991.

Quoted by the Spanish agency Europa Press, he added: "But I am convinced that we are close and soon we will have aerodynamic improvements that will help us make a good step."
