Sebastien Buemi will remain at Red Bull as its reserve driver for 2015.

Since leaving Toro Rosso in 2011, Buemi has stayed on as Red Bull's reserve driver while also carving out a successful career in the World Endurance Championship. Alongside team-mate Anthony Davidson, he won the WEC title for Toyota this year as well as competing and winning races in Formula E.

"I'm very pleased to take on another season as reserve driver at Infiniti Red Bull Racing," Buemi said. "It is like being part of the family now and I have a good working and personal relationship with everyone at the team. I'm looking forward to helping with the development of the RB11 in any way I can. It should be an exciting season and I'm delighted that I will be a part of it."

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said: "We are delighted that S├ębastien will once again act as our Reserve Driver. He's been closely associated with the team for some years now, we value his skills very highly and we have a great working relationship with him. His experience has proved invaluable over the years and it is great to have another world champion at the team."
