The interview content converted from French. Sebastian Buemi told 24heures.ch about the 2012 F1 race seat exit.
The decision you she surprised?
Completely! I fell from the sky. A few days earlier, had been discussed yet full of things for next season. And I was in the simulator yesterday morning at Red Bull Racing in Milton Keynes, where Franz (Tost, Toro Rosso boss) and Helmut (Marko, the head of the chain Red Bull Junior Team) called me …
You have given it an explanation?
Essentially, that Toro Rosso were to train promising young Junior Team, and after three years of F1 could no longer consider myself a junior …
Yes, obviously I’m disappointed. But it is their decision and I respect it. I do not forget that without them I will never come this far, they helped me tremendously long time, almost since my debut in Formula BMW (Red: 2005), then F3, GP2 and F1
What does the future?
I can not say right now. Apart from the fact that I was no longer operating a Toro Rosso in 2012, the doors are not completely closed for me at Red Bull. Are discussed. We did a good job together until now is a good foundation. And for my future, there are plenty of things possible. I stay positive, motivated thoroughly.
