The 22-year-old Swiss was earmarked as the most likely to move over at the end of the season so that Daniel Ricciardo can make his Toro Rosso debut in 2012.

But Buemi drove a brilliant race at Istanbul Park, running seventh near the end after starting 16th on the grid, and eventually crossing the line in ninth place.

"We have rarely seen so much fight from Sebastien," team boss Franz Tost told the Swiss newspaper Blick.

Agreed Toro Rosso's highly respected technical boss Giorgio Ascanelli: "Buemi has really matured. He has learned from his mistakes and with his new fitness coach is now focused on his job.

"He's a driver with a future," added the Italian.
