Buemi On Verge Of Toro Rosso Seat

Red Bull boss and part owner of the Scuderia Toro Rosso team Dietrich Mateschitz has claimed that Sebastien Buemi is on the verge of getting a race seat with the team.

The young Swiss driver has been a tester for both Toro Rosso and Red Bull Racing, alongside driving in series like F3 Euroseries.

It looks likely that the other seat will be a contest between Sebastien Bourdais and Takuma Sato.

“One will very likely be Buemi,” Mateschitz told Autosport.

“The line-up will be confirmed before the last test in December.”

That last test is the 15th-17th December at Jerez.
