Red Bull confirms Doornbos deal

As we suggested recently, Robert Doornbos has been taken on as the third driver for Red Bull Racing. The 24-year-old Dutchman will drive on Fridays and in tests between races. Doornbos is no newcomer to Red Bull having driven for the company when he was Tonio Liuzzi's team mate in Christian Horner's Arden team in Formula 3000.

He started this year as test driver with Jordan but later switched to race for Minardi.

Red Bull has also confirmed that Scott Speed will join Scuderia Toro Rosso, although his exact role in the team has yet to be confirmed.
