Biography

Jean-Eric Vergne Biography

Jean Eric Vergne information & statistics

Jean-Eric Vergne first grid in Australia with the Toro Rosso STR7 (2012)

The career of talented Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne is in limbo after he missed out on a promotion to Red Bull to last year’s team mate Daniel Ricciardo. The pair was in a straight fight to replace the retiring Mark Webber at the current champions and Vergne ultimately missed out.

This has left his career in an interesting position. A pathway to Toro Rosso’s senior team now seems blocked for the foreseeable future as Vettel and Ricciardo remain young and hungry, and a future at Toro Rosso is unsecure as the team exists solely to blood young drivers before they move to Red Bull. After rejecting him once, and with more talent coming through in the shape of Felix Da Costa and new Toro Rosso driver Daniel Kvyat, Vergne is unlikely to last long if he doesn’t show remarkable improvement.

If he doesn’t secure a top drive elsewhere it would be a big shame as all that early potential would go to waste. Vergne has an excellent junior record, with championship successes in French Renault Campus, Formula Renault and British Formula Three as we effortlessly dominated the junior formulas.

Red Bull saw this ability very early and threw him in at the deep end for the 2012 F1 season. Just four points finishes out of 20 races, all 8th placed, was a poor start but it isn’t easy for young drivers to get consistently good results in a struggling car. That is why the appeal of his system Red Bull implement is attractive. The internship separates the men from the boys, just ask Sebastian Vettel.

Last season Vergne didn’t quite push on as he should have done and finished the season with 13 points, 7 less than Ricciardo, with the highlight being a 6th place finish in Canada which accounted for nearly half his points. Now, in 2014 he can’t afford to be 7 or even 1 point behind debutant Kvyat come the end of the season or he will join many others on the F1 scar heap.
