Jaime Alguersuari said that he would rather win the Formula One drivers' title with Red Bull than with any other team after admitting that he has eyes on Mark Webber's F1 seat.

"I will not deny that it is very appealing," Alguersuari told Diario Sport newspaper.

Alguersuari, who currently drives for the Red Bull owned Toro Rosso team, hopes that the close ties between the teams will aid his chances.

"There is no doubt that it is the place I want to be. For me, Red Bull and Toro Rosso are the same family, and they've supported me since I was 15, and trusted me for their Formula One programme when I had no experience."

Although Webber has re-signed with Red Bull for 2011, team boss Christian Horner recently admitted that he is building the team around Sebastian Vettel as the Australian is in the 'autumn of his career'. And for Alguersuari, there would be nothing better than to fight for the title as Vettel's team-mate.

"I would rather win a title with Red Bull than with McLaren or Ferrari, because it's the team close to my heart, people who have helped me all the way."
