Pirelli has appointed Spain’s Jaime Alguersuari and Brazilian, Lucas di Grassi as its test drivers for the 2012 season. Their joint appointment marks the first time Pirelli will have two permanent Formula One test drivers; di Grassi carried out the role single-handedly last year, and Pirelli says the addition of Alguersuari will give the company broader knowledge of the most current generation of Formula One machinery. The latter driver made seven top-10 finishes in 2011 for the Toro Rosso team, while di Grassi started 18 races for Virgin Racing in 2010.
