Toro Rosso settles with Bourdais

Scuderia Toro Rosso has done a deal with Sebastien Bourdais to avoid legal action with the French racer. It is believed that the team has agreed to pay him his salary plus damages reported to be for $2.1m. Bourdais might want another Formula 1 drive but there is virtually no chance of that happening. It is expected that he will end up going back to the United States where he enjoyed much success before making the over-ambitious decision to move to F1.
