Button Could Test With Toro Rosso Next Week
It has been reported today that Jenson Button could test with the Scuderia Toro Rosso team as soon as next week, as the Faenza based outfit look to finalise their drivers for the forthcoming season.
Button has been left without a seat after the Honda team went out of business yesterday.
The bosses at Honda Motor Company have said that they are willing to release Button from his current contract which sees him locked in for 2009 without the possibility of moving, if he wanted too.
The Guardian newspaper reports that Franz Tost of the Toro Rosso team management wants Button to have a test, Tost and Button have experience of working together from Button’s first season in F1 with the BMW powered Williams back in 2000.
