Sebastien Buemi has revealed he is not overly concerned about the additional pressure on him in 2011.

Once the cream of Red Bull's young driver programme, the Swiss is now entering his third season with Toro Rosso and reportedly first in line to be replaced by the team's new Friday driver Daniel Ricciardo.

"Daniel's presence will be a good thing," insisted 22-year-old Buemi when asked about his new Australian stablemate at the Valencia test this week.

"Anyway, that's just F1 -- either you're good enough or you will be replaced by someone who is younger!" he laughed.
