Red Bull Racing’s sister team, Toro Rosso, has officially confirmed their driver line up for the 2011 season, and there’s no change. The Italian based outfit will stick with 21-year-old Sebastien Buemi and much improved young Spaniard Jaime Alguersuari, who is currently in his first full season in F1.
“I believe our drivers will be well prepared for 2011, which is why they are both confirmed for next year,” team boss Franz Tost said. “It is also logical, because one key role of Scuderia Toro Rosso is to bring on young drivers from the Red Bull young driver programme and at the ages of 21 and 20 respectively, both Seb and Jaime certainly still meet the right criteria,” he added.
Sebastian Buemi is currently 14th on the leader board with 7 points, with his younger teammate Alguersuari two places down in 16th with 3 points. That gives Scuderia Toro Rosso a total of 10 points or 9th in the Constructors Championship, ahead of the three rookie teams.
