Félix da Costa gets Red Bull reserve role
6 December 2013 – António Félix da Costa has secured a Red Bull reserve role for the 2014 Formula 1 campaign.
The Portuguese, 22, is handed the position after missing out on a Toro Rosso seat to Daniil Kvyat, and will join the ongoing Sébastien Buemi.
Buemi, who this season contested the World Endurance Championship (WEC) with Toyota, enters his third year as a test driver for the Milton Keynes-based outfit.
"In Sébastien we have a great resource, a driver with extensive grand prix experience and that will be invaluable," said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.
"António, on the other hand, is an up-and-coming talent with whom we already have a good working relationship. I’m sure that his contribution will be just as important during what is sure to be an intensely busy season."
He added: "Next year sees the biggest change to the Formula 1 regulations for some time and the return of multiple in-season tests. To therefore be able to call on two such capable drivers is of huge benefit to the team."
