A harsh decision but a necessary one!! Buemi and jaime were 3 years in the team and did nothing special! Daniel whereas beat liuzzi in 3 to 4 years! Great driver selection by toro rosso!

Only thing inherently wrong about this decision is it's timing. STR could have let Buemi know his time was up after three years months ago when he (and Algy) still had time to try and arrange something for next year. Now they're pretty much resigned to LMS or something like that.

It's getting rather harsh these days to be a Formula One driver. Expressing confidence one day and then a flew days later getting the news you've been dumped while sat in the simulator is well rough certainly. Some teams treat their drivers little more than cogs and bolts. Drivers deserve much more respect than this, much more.

@Richard - yes, that's how Toro Rosso works, if you don't prove yourself quickly you're turfed out in favour of the next new talent. Toro Rosso exists only as a proving ground for drivers to move onto the Red Bull team.

Schumacher and Kobayashi don't drive for STR.
