After many months of teeth-gnashing and hand-wringing, Sebastien Bourdais has been officially confirmed as Scuderia Toro Ross’s second driver. Good move Mr. Mateschitzz. I think you will find that Le Seb will appreciate the opportunity and deserves a second chance. Quote courtesy of our exlusive friends at Autosport:
“It has been a very long and difficult winter, but now the waiting is finally over and I am really excited about tackling my second season with Scuderia Toro Rosso,” said Bourdais.
“I would like to thank Red Bull and Dietrich Mateschitz for this opportunity to continue with a team that made so much progress last year.
“Now, I can focus on preparing for the coming season. It promises to be a very interesting one, thanks to all the rule changes and I’m also looking forward to establishing a good relationship with my new teammate, Sebastien Buemi, to ensure both of us do the best possible job for the team and for Red Bull.”
