    [SIZE=4]Buemi to be Red Bull reserve driver in 2012[/SIZE]
    By Editor on Sunday, January 1, 2012


    Buemi and Vettel, Singapore 2011
    Sebastien Buemi will reportedly become Red Bull’s official reserve driver at Grand Prix this year.

    After three full seasons with the energy drink company’s Italian rookie team Toro Rosso, the 23-year-old Swiss – like his teammate Jaime Alguersuari – lost his race seat ahead of the 2012 season.

    But veteran journalist Roger Benoit, writing in the Swiss newspaper Blick, reports that Buemi will at least remain in the paddock this year, as Red Bull’s new reserve driver.

    He will be ready to substitute not only for Toro Rosso’s newcomers Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, but also if need be for world champion Sebastian Vettel or his Red Bull Racing teammate Mark Webber, Benoit said.

    “No one wants to say if the contract has been signed yet or not,” he added. “But for the driver from Vaud, it is the best solution to at least stay in the paddock.”

    Buemi as RBR reserve for 2012:

    Translation: Mark Webber, get your s*** together or you're going out mid-season.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Mukha naman wala pressure nito kay Mark W. Maganda pa rin naman performance niya IMO.

    Correct. I'll be more pressure with Vettel if I were Webber.

    [SIZE=4]The 2012 Wish List [/SIZE]

    1. Robert Kubica to return to F1 temporarily and show enough form to get a full drive in 2013.

    2. Michael Schumacher to score a podium.

    3. The US Grand Prix to take place at Austin - and be a raging success. The race in New Jersey may be a great prospect but how long is it going to last...? Ten years - fifteen years max...?

    4. The Williams team to score points in the first five races.

    5. Felipe Massa to win a race (preferably on speed alone). Preferably one of the first five. Preferably Australia.

    6. The Korean GP to go all-out to attract a race audience and develop the circuit, otherwise rule itself out for the future. It's crazy that a country with a strong car manufacturing industry can't get behind its own GP.

    7. Jean-Eric Vergne to be a sensation. Red Bull/Toro Rosso need a young upstart to be upsetting the balance at the senior team. (And the French need a new F1 hero)

    8. Mark Webber to mount a serious challenge. Red Bull need an old upstart to be upsetting the balance at the senior team.

    9. Valencia, Hungary, Singapore and Canada to be wet races. (Sorry fans in Montreal who got wet last year - though you did get race of the season)

    10. In the last half of 2011 the podium places were shared out by just five drivers - Webber, Vettel, Alonso, Hamilton, Button. This season, at least 12 drivers to share the 60 podium places up for grabs.

    11. The new Red Bull Racing RB8 is NOT the class of the field.

    12. The Indian GP organisers obtain a dust-buster to hoover the circuit before qualifying and the race and the grand prix is a frenzy of overtaking.

    13. Lewis Hamilton not to hit anyone all season and be a complete stranger to the stewards,

    14. Caterham to beat Lotus for the first time.

    15. The Monaco GP organisers move the trees and the barrier that Sergio Perez hit, back by 100 metres.

    16. Pirelli produce a tyre that is brilliant for qualifying but lasts for just about six or seven laps into the race, giving the top 10 qualifiers a REAL strategy dilemma.

    17. The Championships to go down to the last race.

    18. Ferrari to announce a new title sponsor, finally allowing F1 to say that it is free of Marlboro and tobacco sponsorship.

    19. Kimi Raikkonen makes a sensational return and everybody realises they did really miss him after all. Rubens Barrichello returns as a replacement driver mid-season, if only to bid F1 a proper farewell.

    20. The Bahrain Grand Prix is cancelled and is replaced by the Turkish GP. The Turkish GP organisers raise more money by selling naming rights to their three best corners on the circuit, including the formidable Turn 8. This gives them enough money to support the race and start promoting it properly in Turkey.

    There were several big disappointments in F1 in 2011. Webber was one of the biggest.

    Lewis Hamilton's season was bad, but he showed that he had pace when he had clear air. His problems were his ability to drive in traffic without incident.

    Massa's season was bad, but he was in a crap car.

    Schumacher's season was so-so, but he's old.

    Webber was battling Vettel for wins in 2010. He was in the fastest car of 2011. Yet, time and again in 2011, he demonstrated the inability to qualify nearly as well as Vettel, to make proper race starts (you can only use the "KERS bogging" excuse so many times before accepting he has a problem making starts!) or to keep up with Hamilton and Alonso even though they're in slower cars.

    Red Bull has stated they're satisfied with Webber, but putting Buemi in RBR's third car gives them an option of a pretty good replacement driver in case he doesn't deliver.
