Buemi can ease rumours with 'super race' - Tost

Global Motorsport Media

Sebastien Buemi is not far away from easing all the speculation about his future in Formula One, according to his boss Franz Tost.

It is well known that with Jaime Alguersuari ahead in the points standings and Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne knocking hard on the door at Toro Rosso, a big question-mark hangs above Swiss Buemi's head regarding 2012.

"I will push until the last metre, no matter what is going to happen," the 23-year-old told Blick newspaper.

"The people in charge know my situation very well," said Buemi. "If wheels are not attached properly or the engine fails, is that Buemi's fault?

"Of course it is true then that I am missing important points," he added.

Buemi is responding to recent doses of foul on-track luck, but in the end it is rumoured that Red Bull's Dr Helmut Marko told both him and Alguersuari that the driver with the lower points score will be ousted at the end of 2011, full stop.

It is therefore possible that Abu Dhabi is Buemi's 54th and penultimate Grand Prix?

"For Buemi, it is not the speed, for he is definitely as quick as Alguersuari. He is just usually at the front (of the queue) for the problems," said team boss Tost.

"But I am convinced that Sebastien can still deliver a super race, and then all the talk about his future will be over," he added.

If worse comes to worse, however, what will Buemi do?

"I am a racing driver and I have no plan B," he insists.
