Buemi 'tortured' by missing out on race starts

But despite his enthusiasm for Le Mans, Buemi insisted that he certainly was't giving up on a return to F1 in the future - especially given that Red Bull's Mark Webber has only signed a one-year renewal with the team till the end of 2013.

"Nothing can be ruled out," said Buemi, pointing out that the situation in F1 was always in a state of flux and prone to rapid change. "But even if at the end of the year Mark Webber finishes his career, it is clear that there will be a lot of applicants for his place."

In the meantime, Buemi will continue working as a TV co-commentator at race weekends, while hoping that an opportunity to return to F1 duty opens up in the coming months.

Time to start lobbying for a Porsche LMP1 drive for next season. The F1 bottleneck won't get much wider until at least a couple manufacturers decide to (re)join the fray.
