Sebastien Bourdais' future is once again the object of speculation, with the French publication Auto Hebdo publishing rumours that his Toro Rosso seat is in immediate danger.

The report comes shortly in the wake of Spanish teenager Jaime Alguersuari's claim that, although newly ensconced as Red Bull's F1 reserve driver, his Grand Prix debut could actually be made in 2009.

Auto Hebdo claims the energy drink company's motor sport chiefs are unhappy with 30-year-old Bourdais and have given the Frenchman just one more race - this weekend at the Nurburgring - to prove he should retain the race seat at Faenza.

As well as 19-year-old Alguersuari, Giorgio Pantano and Bruno Senna were named as possible replacements.
