Jaime Alguersuari has become another Formula One figure to question Renault's suspension from the forthcoming European Grand Prix at Valencia.

According to the stewards, Fernando Alonso's team received the ban for knowingly sending the Spaniard onto the track in Hungary last weekend with a loose wheel that ultimately fell off.

Commentator Martin Brundle, and Ferrari test driver Marc Gene, have linked the FIA stewards' decision with a reaction on the grounds of safety in the wake of the recent incidents involving Henry Surtees and Felipe Massa.

Alguersuari, a 19-year-old Spaniard who made his Grand Prix debut for Toro Rosso in Hungary, told the El Pais newspaper of the decision: "It is stupid and unjust."
