Toro Rosso fires Bourdais

Formula One team Toro Rosso has fired French driver Sebastien Bourdais.
Bourdais, a four-time Champ Car series champion in the United States, had been unimpressive in the 2009 season, his second in F1.
Toro Rosso said a replacement driver would be named in the lead-up to the Hungarian Grand Prix.
"In Sebastien's second year with us, the partnership has not met out expectations and therefore we have decided to replace him as from the next round of the world championship, the Hungarian Grand Prix," Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost said in a statement.
