Red Bull protégé Sébastien Buemi will race for Scuderia Toro Rosso this year, although there is still no news about the identity of his team-mate.
The Swiss was reserve driver for sister team Red Bull Racing last season, although he got very little running. He also finished only sixth in the GP2 series, driving for Christian Horner’s Arden team. He impressed when he tested for Toro Rosso after the end of the season, however, and was finally confirmed in January.
“It was quite a wait until the announcement,” he told Motor Sport. “I just tried to do my best on the circuit, especially at the last test, and I was quite happy with the results. Christmas was quite good, I was confident. But you never know.”
Sébastien Bourdais and Takuma Sato remain prime candidates for the other seat, although the potential availability of Jenson Button could delay any decision.
