1 Mins read

Toro Rosso boss Franz Tost has revealed that the driver line up for the team will remain unchanged for 2011 with Jaime Alguersuari and Sebastien Buemi resuming driving duties.

“I believe our drivers will be well prepared for 2011, which is why they are both confirmed for next year,” 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.

The news of this has come as a surprise to Sebastien Buemi who has denied that a deal has already been done.

Talking on blick.ch he revealed “I have not signed yet. In addition there are some details missing, so the transfer market is still open”

In the past week Buemi has been a target for Renault boss Eric Boullier. “Sebastien is on our list of potential drivers for 2011,” Boullier revealed to Swiss daily newspaper Le Matin. “He even has a special place on it, because I know him well and like him very much on a personal level.”
