Sato Gets Another Toro Rosso Test

Takuma Sato has been handed another test with the Scuderia Toro Rosso team.

The popular Japanese driver, who has shown serious speed in the past but conjoined with multiple accidents, has been out of a drive since Super Aguri went bankrupt last season.

Toro Rosso have been looking for an experienced driver to go alongside a young-gun.  It is thought that Sato will be fighting it out with Rubens Barrichello, Sebastien Buemi, Bruno Senna and Sebastien Bourdais to get one of 2 seats up for grabs.

Taking on Sato would be useful for the Red Bull Energy Drink brand in Japan where it has struggled to establish a good position.

A statement on Sato’s website said: “We are extremely happy to announce that Takuma will be testing again for Toro Rosso in Barcelona on 17-18 November.

“Toro Rosso have yet to decide on their driver line up for the 2009 season. We would like to thank all the fans, as ever, for their fantastic support for Takuma and look forward to more good news soon.”
