Jean-Eric Vergne Biography

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

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

The career of talented former Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne is in limbo after he missed out on a promotion to Red Bull, to his former team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

The pair were in a straight fight to replace the retiring Mark Webber at the end of 2013 and Vergne ultimately missed out. At Toro Rosso, he has now been dropped in favour of a new generation of young starts. Vergne’s narrow defeat to Ricciardo may have ended his F1 career.

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 season with Toro Rosso. 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.

In 2013, 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.

In 2014, he handsomely beat his younger team-mate, Daniil Kvyat, as he put a decent season together. However, that didn’t stop Toro Rosso replacing him with 17-year-old Max Verstappen, and without sponsorship money and big teams available, Vergne’s short, but promising F1 career, may be over.
