Red Bull offering Buemi to 2017 Renault F1

Sebastien Buemi would make an ideal new race driver for the works Renault team.

That is the view of Red Bull team boss Christian Horner, just as the Swiss newspaper Blick claims that Swiss Buemi has been re-signed by Red Bull as a test driver.

Buemi, now 27, raced over 50 times for Toro Rosso but is now a Red Bull simulator driver and this weekend is tackling Le Mans for Toyota.

But Horner thinks Buemi would be an ideal race driver for Renault, the works team of Red Bull’s engine supplier.

“We are now offering Buemi to Renault,” Horner told Blick.

“He would be the ideal man for the team of our engine partner. He’s fast, hard-working, has excellent technical understanding and experience — you can call him at 3 in the morning and he would still come to the factory,” he added.
