According to James Allen’s blog, Sebastien Bourdais is out at Toro Rosso. Now, I don’t really report on F1 news, but you’ve got to stop and wonder what’s next for the four-time Champ Car Champ. His seat has been on thin ice for about, well, his entire time in F1, but this year notably. Bourdais is saying that he’s going forward till he hears otherwise, but apparently James Allen is hearing otherwise before Sebastien himself.
Earlier in the season, there were rumors that if Bourdais was out of a car before Indy, his old team would get him in a car. Would they self fund a seat if he’s let go? Is Bob Doornbos running thin on money? It makes you think. The guy did dominate the ol’ World Series for them.
