PROFILE
Jean-Eric Vergne

A simple reason why Jean-Eric Vergne is a driver to keep an eye on is that he was considered for the Red Bull drive for 2014.

The opportunity didn't materialise for the Frenchman; the seat went to his Toro Rosso teammate Daniel Ricciardo. But the fact that Red Bull continued with the driver in its unforgiving programme speaks volumes of his potential.

He may have struggled in his rookie season in 2012 as he got his first look at many of the F1 circuits but significantly he upstaged a bit more experienced teammate Daniel Ricciardo.

When the race for the Red Bull seat was heating up, Vergne was ahead of Ricciardo in the total points scored since the two were paired together. Ricciardo eventually got the better of Vergne by the end of the campaign but the Frenchman still has plenty to look forward to.

When Jean-Eric Vergne's dad first took him karting at age four, it started a lifelong love of the sport that has ended up taking the young Frenchman all the way to F1. Now in his third season, he would be aiming to stay ahead of the competition and particularly ahead of his rookie teammate Daniil Kvyat.

Supported by France's motor sport governing body early in his career, he eventually came under Red Bull's wing and impressed when participating in the lower formulae. Vergne has a lot to offer but whether he will achieve his goals remains to be seen.
