SourceVettel confirmed at STR for '08
Scuderia Toro Rosso's new driver Sebastian Vettel will race for the team throughout 2008, it was confirmed in Hungary on Thursday.
The 20-year-old has been brought in for the rest of this season to replace American Scott Speed who was sacked by the team last week.
Vettel made his debut earlier this season when he stood in for BMW's injured Robert Kubica at the US Grand Prix.
The German, who scored a point for BMW on his debut, has been released from his contract as third driver for the team.
News on his 2008 team-mate, rumoured to be triple Champ Car title-holder Sebastien Bourdais, is expected soon.
Not exactly 'stop the press' material, but finally been confirmed.
