Sato to test for Toro Rosso

Takuma Sato will reportedly be testing for Toro Rosso later this year as the team evaluates who should drive for the team next season. There is currently one confirmed spot at the team for the 2009 season with Sebastien Vettel confirmed as moving to sister team Red Bull Racing for the 2009 season, with a small chance that the team may also be looking for a replacement Sebastien Bourdais.

It is already widely known that GP2 racer and Red Bull test driver Sebastien Buemi will be testing for the team, and now German magazine Auto Motor und Sport has reported that Takuma Sato will also be given a chance to prove his mettle at a future test for the team. Toro Rosso owners Gerhard Berger and Dietrich Mateschitz are not thought to be making a decision on their 2009 line-up until at least October.
