Red Bull have sprung a surprise by naming Sebastien Buemi, who was dropped from feeder team Toro Rosso, as the reserve driver for their senior team.

The Swiss will be back-up for Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. Team principal Christian Horner said Buemi's Red Bull knowledge and Formula One experience made the move 'logical'. Buemi, 23, said: "I would prefer to be driving at races, but this is the next best thing."
