Buemi, who also raced GP2 last season, would be Switzerland’s first Formula One driver since Jean-Denis Delatraz in 1995. Positive energy is oozing from this young driver –

Other contenders for his seat are Bourdais, Sato, Honda veteran Rubens Barrichello and GP2 frontrunner Bruno Senna have also been mentioned in connection with the Toro Rosso seats.
