BUEMI STAYING PUT: Sebastien Buemi will continue to be Red Bull's reserve driver for the 2013 championship.

Sebastien Buemi will remain Red Bull's official third and reserve driver in 2013.

The former Toro Rosso racer, who served as Red Bull's reserve in 2012, is out of the running for the second Force India seat in 2013.

Buemi is in Brazil competing in Felipe Massa's annual Florianopolis kart race.

THE THIRD BULL

Formula 1 correspondent Roger Benoit said: "Buemi will again be signed as reserve driver for Red Bull and Toro Rosso. Team advisor Helmut Marko has agreed the renewal with Buemi."

Belgian newspaper Le Vif reported that Jerome d'Ambrosio is likely to remain Lotus' official third driver in 2013.

d'Ambrosio, who is managed by Lotus team boss Eric Boullier's Gravity stable, has been working to return to the grid.

He said: "My management is working hard but it's difficult because there are many experienced drivers without teams. We'll see."
