Sep.11 (GMM) Sebastien Bourdais does not seem keen to keep racing in formula one next year, if he must do it at the wheel of the current Toro Rosso car.
The Frenchman is fighting to retain his place on the grid for 2009, but he openly admits to simply struggling for pace with the Ferrari-powered STR3.He is quoted as saying by the International Herald Tribune that, at the wheel of the Red Bull Technology-supplied chassis, he is not able to show his true talents."For sure if I am judged upon my performance in this car, where I am a shadow of myself, then it is just frustrating," the four time Champ Car champion said.Bourdais, 29, admits one of his weaknesses is not being able to adapt to a car that does not suit him."Obviously I would like to stay, but it all depends on what the expectations are," he said, referring to Toro Rosso chiefs Gerhard Berger and Franz Tost as they consider the team's 2009 lineup."If their expectations are for me to adapt to a car I don't like, then I don't think it's a good idea to keep me," Bourdais suggested.
