In 2011, and after the best season in the category, both he and his partner Sébastien Buemi, They got fired.
After passing through Formula 1, he ventured into other categories. The Formula e it was his last destination. The Spaniard had an accident in a test and a blackout. This was the last time he got into a car, since a few weeks later and at the age of 25, he announced that he was leaving the sport to work on one of his passions: music. Under the name of Dj squire, Alguersuari became a music producer.
Six years after his abandonment of motorsport for music, since he claimed that the sport had let him down, Alguersuari started racing again. The Spaniard is preparing to return in a big way.
