Sebastian Buemi is set to stay at Scuderia Toro Rosso, it has emerged.
The Swiss’ future had been the subject of speculation last week as he refused to commit himself to the Italian team.
But quotes this morning appear to show that Buemi is intent on staying within the Red Bull fold, for all the concomitant advantages it affords him.
“I have been with Red Bull for almost all my motor sport career and I am under contract with them for the foreseeable future, starting with next year,” he said.
“And if I haven’t signed anything, that’s because there is nothing to sign! I am very happy where I am and well aware that I would not be here without Red Bull.”
