Bourdais drops legal action against Toro Rosso

Nicolas Todt has revealed that Sebastien Bourdais has elected not to issue legal proceedings against the Toro Rosso team over his departure from the F1 grid.

The Red Bull-owned outfit confirmed following the German Grand Prix that Bourdais was to leave the team, with the Frenchman revealing that he was considering legal action as a result.

However, according to the French 'paper L'Equipe, discussions following Bourdais' departure have resulted in a settlement being reached which will prevent the need for legal proceedings to take place.

"One week after the German grand prix, we reached an out-of-court settlement with the team,” Todt revealed. “They knew it would not stand up in court."

Bourdais was replaced in the Toro Rosso line-up by Spanish rookie Jaime Alguersuari.
