Toro Rosso’s Sebastiens.

2 09 2008

Sebastien Bourdais’ Formula 1 career has been lackluster. Consistently beaten by his younger teammate, there is now word that Scuderia Toro Rosso will test Takuma Sato for a 2009 race seat, the one vacated by Sebastien Vettel. Sato brings marketability to a nation thirsty for Red Bull. Sebastien Buemi, also being considered for 2009, is a GP2 standout and a career Red Bull-sponsored athlete. Oddly enough, he’d be the third Sebastien-driver for Toro Rosso in a row. Saint Sebastien is the patron saint of athletes, Red Bull is  athletically-driven in advertising and their employment of aptly named drivers makes this little situation quite ironic.
