Bourdais Set To Claim Toro Rosso Seat
Sebastien Bourdais is on the verge of getting a race seat at the Scuderia Toro Rosso team after months of rumours and tests according to a Swiss magazine.
The magazine, Speedweek, claims that Bourdais has been picked over Takuma Sato and it will be announced next week.
Sato has not been picked, despite good tests apparantly on account that expected sponsorship earnings for the Toro Rosso teams would be significantly lowered thanks to the world economic downturn.
Bourdais, a multiple ChampCar World Champion competed in F1 for the first time in 2008 with a couple of good results and quite a few bad ones. He was frequently centred around controversy and has a strange knack for it being everyone else’s fault but his own.
His manager Nicolas Todt only said “We are always in negotiations with Toro Rosso”.
