SEBASTIEN BUEMI: He has a Red Bull seat for 2012 - but he won't be doing much racing.

MILTON KEYNES, England - Red Bull has named Sebastien Buemi as a test and reserve driver for the 2012 Formula 1 season.

The 23-year-old Swiss was dropped by sister team Toro Rosso after finishing 15th in last season's standings with 15 points.

‘NEXT-BEST THING’

Buemi will support an unchanged Red Bull driver pairing of World champion Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

He said: “I would prefer to be driving at the races, of course, but working with Red Bull Racing on the development of their car and providing them with feedback throughout the season is the next-best thing."
