Toro Rosso settles with Bourdais

Apparently after feeling the heat of unceremoniously giving the Hamburgular ze Boot! And letting some 19yr old Punk named Jamie Alguersuari leak the news to the World via the Spanish press… Scuderia Toro Rosso has quickly decided to settle with Sebastian Bourdais, rather then find itself potentially losing in a court room battle and henceforth has agreed to pay sea Bass his ’09 salary plus $2.1 million in damages for breeching his contract.

This obviously makes the Frenchman a “Free Agent” with enough dinero to potentially purchase a ride elsewhere… And even though the cynics suggest he’s gone from Formula 1 and headed back Stateside to find a place in Indy Car’s; can you say De Ferran Motorsports? Nevertheless, I’d not be overly shocked to see him land at the home of F1 “Vurdmeister,” Peter Winsor, self anointed Sporting Director of USF1, Err USGPE…
