Australian Ricciardo, and 22-year-old Frenchman Vergne who is a year younger, moved into the Faenza based team's race seats when Toro Rosso ousted Jaime Alguersuari and Sebastien Buemi at the end of last season.

"Both drivers have done a good job this season," said team boss Franz Tost.

Toro Rosso usually selects its drivers from team owner Red Bull's junior programme.

In 2012, the youngsters are Carlos Sainz Jr, Russian Daniil Kvyat, Alex Albon, Callan O'Keeffe, German Stefan Wackerbauer and Portugal's Antonio Felix da Costa.
