Buemi targets long-term Red Bull future

Sebastien Buemi looks forwards to a long-term F1 future with Red Bull
Sebastien Buemi says he is targeting a long-term relationship with Red Bull which will allow him to move up from Toro Rosso to the senior F1 team in future.

Buemi is currently in his second season with Toro Rosso and will remain with the Red Bull 'B' team for a third successive year next year alongside Spaniard Jaime Alguersuari.

GP2 graduate Buemi has taken seven points finishes during his career to date and had been linked with a possible move elsewhere for 2011 before inking his new deal and the Swiss driver admitted that keeping his relationship with Red Bull was a main factor in his decision to stay where he is.

“Obviously it's really good when some of the teams are looking for you because it means that they think you are good enough to fit in their team,” he said on the official Toro Rosso website. “So this is good; you are happy when you hear those kind of things.

“But Red Bull helped me so much in the past and is still helping me so I want to stay with them as long as I can. I want to be scoring points, I want to win races and championships. This is I think pretty clear for most of the drivers.

“Now we've got to stay realistic, it's not really easy with what we have [at Toro Rosso]. But we work really hard and I'm confident in the future I'll be able to step in the Red Bull which is now the fastest car.”
