Bourdais pleads for Toro Rosso patience

Sebastien Bourdais has pleaded with his Toro Rosso bosses to give him another season in formula one to prove his talents.

The Frenchman has mainly struggled since the introduction of the Italian team’s current STR3 chassis, as alternatives including Takuma Sato, Sebastien Buemi and Bruno Senna hope for their grand prix debut in 2009.

Bourdais, 29, told the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport that next year might be a better season for him.

“Maybe with the new regulations, I will not have the same problems,” he said. “Whether the bosses have the patience, I cannot judge.

“I can only tell a story: my first season of Champ Car in 2003 was also really tough, but Newman-Haas stuck with me and I thanked them with four titles,” Bourdais added.
