Toro Rosso's Buemi only F1 driver change

Toro Rosso's Buemi only F1 driver change

Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi is the only newcomer so far on Formula One's list of drivers for 2009.
The sport's governing body FIA released an entry list Monday with largely unchanged team lineups for this year's season, although Buemi's teammate at Toro Rosso is yet to be announced.
Buemi, a 21-year-old Swiss driver, takes Sebastian Vettel's spot after the German driver replaced the retired David Coulthard at sister team Red Bull. Sebastien Bourdais and former Super Aguri driver Takuma Sato are both candidates for Toro Rosso's second spot.
Honda has announced it is pulling out of the sport but was still given two spots on the FIA's list, with the drivers left unnamed. Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello drove for the team last year.
Lewis Hamilton, who became the sport's youngest ever champion, remains McLaren's top driver and is backed by teammate Heikki Kovalainen. Ferrari is again represented by Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa.
