    Buemi & Alguesary hit in the face by Toro Rosso Thread Closed

    Sebastien Buemi (23) no longer driving in F1. The Toro Rosso-Ferrari has decided to grant a tenure Daniel Ricciardo (AUS) and newcomer Jean-Eric Vergne (Fr) for the 2012 season.

    The Italian team is going to change its two drivers next season. The newly elected officials from the sector of the Red Bull Junior Driver. In a statement, Toro Rosso said that the choice was made in collaboration with Red Bull.

    The blow is hard to Sébastien Buemi, while most of the flying 2012 have already been assigned. The Vaudois, like his Spanish teammate Jaime Alguersuari, may not be on the starting grid at the first Grand Prix in Australia next March.

    Buemi has played three full seasons with Toro Rosso, for a total of 54 Grands Prix. He finished 15 times in the points, his best result being a 7th place in Brazil in 2009. World Championship, the Swiss has successively ranked 16th (6 points) in 2009, 16 (8 points) and 15th in 2010 (15 points) in 2011.

    Thanks

    "I thank Sébastien Buemi and Alguersuari for their hard work in recent seasons. They have an excellent performance that allowed the team to progress. I express my wishes for the rest of their careers, "said Franz Tost, Toro Rosso boss, the statement said. He also recalled that the objective of his team was to provide opportunities for young people in the industry to make Red Bull their first F1, which means changing its drivers regularly.

    Ricciardo (22) has some experience of F1. Indeed, he played the last eight races of the 2011 season with a HRT-Cosworth. He has never done better than 18th (Hungary and India). As Vergne (21), he rode with Toro Rosso as the third driver in free practice on Friday morning when three races late in the season. "Christmas came early for me this year," he said.

    Hard to be on an ejection seat and to wait that the buttom will be pressed by ........ You can just take your tears with you and starting to pray that a team will give you a seat in 2012.

    this is F1 policy

    It's a VERY competitive little market but this is pretty harsh still. I think Buemi deserves a seat in 2012.. perhaps Barrichello wil go.

    It might be a bit harsh, but I say - GOOD RIDDANCE! 

    They were just two of most mediocre names on the grid, although the car being slouch didn't help either! But that's not an excuse not to show few acts of brilliance every once in a while...

    Hmm true, I'm all for new talent, it keeps things interesting.
