PROFILE
Sebastien Buemi

With three seasons behind him at Toro Rosso, Sebastien Buemi brings a wealth of Formula 1 experience to Red Bull, where he takes on the role of test and reserve driver.

After a successful spell in karting in his native Switzerland, Séb made the transfer to single-seaters in 2004 in Formula BMW where he finished third in the series behind Sebastian Vettel.

Moving through Formula 3 Euroseries and A1 GP, Buemi arrived in GP2 in 2007. The following year he was runner-up in the GP2 Asia series and finished sixth overall in the main series, taking wins along the way.

He finally got his shot at F1 when he was confirmed as a race driver at Toro Rosso for 2009. On 29 March that year, in Australia, he became the first Swiss driver since Jean-Denis Délétraz drove for Pacific at the 1995 European Grand Prix and the 25th Swiss racer to contest a Grand Prix.

To top that, Buemi finished in the points on his debut, finishing eighth to take a point under the scoring rules in force at the time. He was later promoted to seventh when Lewis Hamilton was excluded from the final result.

Since then Buemi has racked up many thousands of kilometers in F1 machinery in his three competitive seasons in the sport.

Having established a good working relationship with Red Bull in his time as the team’s reserve driver in 2008, Séb now returns to the role as a seasoned pro and with in-season testing back again this year his experience will undoubtedly prove invaluable.
