Jaime Alguersuari has reportedly turned down an offer to drive for HRT this year, saying it would be a backward step.

The Spaniard was left without a Formula One race-seat after being dropped by Toro Rosso in a move that shocked many in the F1 community, including the driver himself.

Alguersuari's axing immediately sparked rumours that Spanish team HRT could be his next destination as he bids to remain in the sport.

However, according to Spanish daily AS, Alguersuari has "definitely" ruled out HRT as it is "considered a step backwards in his career."

Alguersuari is instead looking to become a third driver with one of the top teams with McLaren-Mercedes named in the article.
