Buemi expects driver decision this month

Buemi expects driver decision this month

Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Buemi admits he's a bit in the dark with regards to whether or not he will have a drive next year but expects a decision soon.

It initially appeared that Toro Rosso would make at least one change to their line-up, with Buemi and team-mate Jaime Alguersuari both under pressure.

However, as the season drew to a close, there appeared to be a change of thinking at the Faenza-based outfit.

Daniel Ricciardo was one of those linked with a move to STR but he revealed earlier in the week that a potential move was all but dead and expected the team to retain the status quo.

Buemi admits he knows "zero" about the situation but expects a resolution fairly soon.

"I do know that the decision will be in December," he told Blick.

"I'm just taking it easy for a few days.

"I just have a date with my watch sponsor Audemars Piguet and after that I will be in the Red Bull simulator in Milton Keynes in England between the 11th and 14th of December.

"I am continuing to work as normal," he added.
