Toro Rosso chooses Bourdais over Sato

FRANCE'S Sebastien Bourdais will drive for Toro Rosso again in 2009, the Formula One team said yesterday in a statement that ended Japanese driver Takuma Sato's hopes of a comeback.

The decision to hand the 29-year-old Le Mans-born driver a second season also shut out Britain's Jenson Button, whose hopes now depend on his Honda team finding new owners in the next few weeks. "It has been a very long and difficult winter, but now the waiting is finally over and I am really excited about tackling my second season with Scuderia Toro Rosso," said Bourdais, who will partner Swiss rookie Sebastien Buemi. Bourdais partnered Sebastian Vettel at the Ferrari-powered team last year.
