Sebastien Buemi DRIVER
Sebastien Buemi (SUI) Scuderia Toro Rosso. 
Formula One World Championship, Rd 5, Spanish Grand Prix, Race, Barcelona, Spain, Sunday, 22 May 2011


Assured but arguably unspectacular form continues in third season with Toro Rosso, where there is little to choose between him and team mate Alguersuari. Finishes 15th overall, one place behind the Spaniard.

Formula One World Championship, Rd 3, Malaysian Grand Prix, Practice Day, Sepang, Malaysia, Friday, 2 April 2010


Difficult start to second season with Toro Rosso, failing to score until a tenth-place finish in Monaco. Further top-ten placings in Canada, Europe and Japan help him retain standings advantage over younger but fast improving team mate Alguersuari, with 16th place overall.

Impresses with points on F1 debut and generally outperforms more experienced team mate Bourdais, who is ultimately dropped mid-season, leaving Buemi to lead the Italian squad. Enjoys a positive end to the year, taking home points from the final two rounds.
