SÉBASTIEN BUEMI

Sébastien Buemi was signed by Red Bull in 2006 and became their reserve driver in 2008 after finishing second in the F3 Euro Series in 2007. Despite having never won a championship, the 20-year-old impressed with his maturity and speed in testing.

He then became Toro Rosso's first choice to replace Sebastian Vettel following the German's move up to Red Bull, despite finishing sixth in GP2 the previous year. He wasted no time in showing his potential in his debut race in Australia, scoring points with a seventh-place finish.

In 2012, he becomes test and reserve driver for Red Bull.

"Bell helmets are simply amazing! Bell possesses technology I didn’t know even existed! They pioneered so many innovations and the way they customized my helmet starting from a head scan is incredible - the helmet fits like a glove, is superlight, compact and the aerodynamic and cooling properties in a Formula 1 car are excellent.

Bell really takes care of their drivers and the relationship on and off track is great. I hope to be with Bell for many years to come!"
