Sebastien Buemi has denied having committed to the Toro Rosso team for next year, despite yesterday's claim to the contrary from team boss Franz Tost.
The team principal said on Thursday that both Buemi and teammate Jaime Alguersuari would stay with the Faenza-based squad in 2010. "I believe our drivers will be well prepared for 2011, which is why they are both confirmed for next year," said Tost. "It is also logical, because one key role of Scuderia Toro Rosso is to bring on young drivers from the Red Bull Young Driver program and at the ages of 21 and 20 respectively, both Seb and Jaime certainly still meet the right criteria."
Buemi, however, has denied having signed a contract with Toro Rosso and admitted he is still considering his options.
"I have not signed yet," Buemi was quoted as saying by Blick. "Also, there are some details that are missing, so the transfer market is still open."
