The 24-year-old former Toro Rosso race driver will assist triple champion Sebastian Vettel and Australian Mark Webber at the team.

“I know everyone at Red Bull Racing well and it’s good to remain with the team for another year. Of course my aim is to be driving at the races again but I am still learning all the time from my work with the team,” he said in a statement.
