Jaime Alguersuari has dropped a gentle hint that he may have secured a race seat for the 2013 season.

The Spaniard was dropped by Toro Rosso at the end of the 2011 season, leaving him without a seat for the current year.

In an effort to remain on the sports radar, he joined Pirelli as test driver alongside Lucas di Grassi as well as taking up a commentary position with BBC 5 Live.

However in a Tweet posted on Thursday, the 22-year-old suggested he would soon announce plans for a return to the grid next year.

"Soon you'll all know where I will be driving next year. Thank you all again," read the message on the social networking site.

He has been tipped as a replacement for a number of drivers including Heikki Kovalainen, Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton - though the latter is unlikely.
