'Buemi re-signs as Red Bull tester'

Monday 07-January-2013 12:35

Sebastien Buemi will remain with Red Bull for this season, filling the role of test and reserve driver.

Buemi powered down to a test driver role in the wake of his axing as a Toro Rosso race driver.

The Swiss racer, though, remained in the same stable after taking the job of Red Bull Racing test driver.

And although the ban on in-season testing has meant he has spent little time in the car, Blick claims he has signed a new deal.

The Swiss newspaper claims that Buemi will remain as a team-mate to Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber in 2013 after agreeing a new deal to be the squad's official test and reserve driver.
