Scott Speed is testing today for his Scuderia Toro Rosso team despite clashing with his bosses, and the American is still planned to race next weekend at Hungary.
Speed lashed out at Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost yesterday, after the two had an altercation at the Nurburgring last Sunday.
And the Red Bull-backed driver, who joined the team last season, claimed both Tost and team co-owner Gerhard Berger are trying to push himself and teammate Tonio Liuzzi out of the team.
The public criticism led to rumours that Speed has been sacked from Toro Rosso, to be replaced by BMW test driver Sebastian Vettel.
The young German is at Mugello today, where Toro Rosso are testing alongside Ferrari. However, Speed took to the wheel of the STR02 shortly before noon.
Furthermore, when asked by autosport.com if Speed will race in Budapest next week, Tost himself replied 'yes' unequivocally.
