Sebastien Buemi says there are no doubts that he will be at Scuderia Toro Rosso next season, despite saying late last week that he had not signed a contract.
Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost announced last week that the outfit would be retaining both Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari for 2010 – although Buemi was later quoted as saying that he had not sorted out a contract. However, during a midsummer party at Toro Rosso's Faenza factory at the weekend, Buemi has said that he will definitely be with the team again.
"I have been with Red Bull for almost all my motorsport career and I am under contract with them for the foreseeable future, starting with next year," he said. "If I haven't signed anything, that's because there is nothing to sign! I am very happy where I am and well aware that I would not be here without Red Bull."
Buemi joined Toro Rosso at the start of 2009 and his best finishes have been seventh place in that year's Australian and Brazilian Grands Prix.
