Toro Rosso must decide within the next ten days whether or not they want to sign ChampCar superstar Sebastien Bourdais for 2008.

The 28-year-old Frenchman has tested for Toro Rosso on numerous occasions since November, most recently at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium last week.

And former F1 driver Gerhard Berger, who co-owns the squad with Red Bull, has been so impressed that he has taken an option of first refusal on him.

"We have an option on him until the end of the month," said Berger.

"I have to say he delivered what we were expecting from him," said Berger. "He has been quick, consistent and good with the engineers. So I think he has a good potential."

Bourdais, who has won the ChampCar title for the past three years for the Newman/Haas/Lanigan team, is not the only name on Berger's wishlist though.

"There are a couple of names that we know are able to do a good job," he said. "One of them is Sebastien Bourdais and another one is Sebastian Vettel."

BMW Sauber test driver Vettel's name has been linked with the team for over a month thanks to his links with Red Bull.
