Buemi and Fassler drive for Switzerland in China

Monday, April 09, 2007 Sebastien Buemi, who last raced for A1 Team Switzerland on the Australian Grand Prix in February will be back at the wheel for A1 Team Switzerland in China this weekend. Marcel Fassler will resume his rookie driver duties in this penultimate round of the A1GP season.

Sebastien Buemi comments, "It's very exciting to be back behind the wheel, the last time was in Australia where I scored seven points for the team. Since then, I have kept very busy testing for F3 and preparing ahead of the season, setting the fastest times in most of the recent tests. Of course, I have no experience yet of driving on the Shanghai track, but I had a good look at the track and at last year's data. I will arrive early to get over the jet-lag and be able to see the track, so I hope it will go well. I hope to keep the good level and good results of the team at the penultimate race for the race in China."

Max Welti, team principal, A1 Team Switzerland adds, "I am confident that with our experience on this track from last year, a well-prepared car, and Sebastien Buemi back on racing duties with Marcel Fassler our rookie again, we will do a good job on the impressive Chinese track. The championship is very close with our team sixth in the classification with 45 points, five points behind Malaysia and two points ahead of Netherlands and we are more determined than ever to take a step up in the classification this weekend. We are determined to continue moving up the standings with a great result this weekend."
