Raikkonen, Ricciardo or Vergne for 2014: Horner

Jul 5 2013, 12:54pm CDT | by

Nurburg (Germany), July 5 (IANS) Formula 1 team Red Bull's team principal Christian Horner Friday said that Kimi Raikkonen, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne are the likely contenders to replace Mark Webber as world vhampion Sebastian Vettel's teammate in 2014.

Nurburg (Germany), July 5 — Formula 1 team Red Bull's team principal Christian Horner Friday said that Kimi Raikkonen, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne are the likely contenders to replace Mark Webber as world vhampion Sebastian Vettel's teammate in 2014.

Australian Webber announced last week that he will bring an end to his Formula 1 career at the end of this season. Ever since the announcement, rumours have begun about who would replace him next season.

"We are in the fortunate position not to be short of choice. We'll take our time to make the right decision. Red Bull Racing is a world championship winning team and wants to put the best drivers in our cars," the Briton was quoted as saying on Formula1.com.

Horner confirmed the speculations that Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso's drivers, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, and former world vhampion Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus are in the race for the seat.

"If one of the drivers can be of the junior team that will purely be based on merit. Both the juniors (Ricciardo and Vergne) are contenders, and also one or two drivers that are out of contract at the end of the year. There are a lot of drivers without contract at the end of the year but the reality is that it will boil down to three drivers: the two juniors and Kimi."

Asked about their chances this weekend at the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, the 39-year-old said: "This is Sebastian's home race and it would be fantastic for him to win here. Mark won his first ever Grand Prix here in 2009, so we have good memories. Sebastian has a fantastic home crowd here - that should propel him and us. In the end, this race carries the same amount of points as any other weekend and we want to win them all."

Excuse me. Let me put an uneducated, baseless, but scientifically possible prediction: Jean-Eric Vergne somewhere on the grid next year – perhaps in Newman-Haas with fellow STR DO Bourdais! P.S. Italian reporters move on. There’s nothing of interest in this post. ...

Tost : "Vergne est le meilleur à quitter Toro Rosso"

Le team principal de Toro Rosso, Franz Tost, déclare que Jean-Eric Vergne est le meilleur pilote à ce jour à quitter son équipe et à ne pas être promu chez Red Bull. Toro Rosso a annoncé la semaine dernière que JEV serait remplacé par le jeune Néerlandais Max Verstappen, 16 ans, en 2015 aux côtés de Daniil Kvyat. Cela augure un futur incertain en Formule 1 pour le Français. "Des pilotes qui nous ...

Aug 27 2014 3:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jean-Eric Vergne's Formula One future hangs by a thread. After three seasons at Red Bull's sister team, Toro Rosso, Vergne is being replaced for 2015 by Max Verstappen. The Frenchman has been with Red Bull since 2007, and with no seat available at the main team it looks like the relationship will come to an end. He has less than six months to find a new drive and salvage his F1 career. Vergne has been active ...

Jean-Eric Vergne s'est classé à une frustrante onzième place (en tenant compte de la pénalité de Magnussen) à l'arrivée du Grand Prix de Belgique. Malgré une fin de course rondement menée, il n'a pas pu se mêler à la lutte pour les points, au contraire de son équipier Daniil Kvyat. Un manque de puissance durant les premiers tours a empêché JEV d'accrocher le bon wagon. "C ...

Après s’être illustré durant la première partie des qualifications, Jean-Eric Vergne a encore une fois joué de malchance au volant de sa Toro Rosso cet après-midi à Spa-Francorchamps. JEV n’a pu faire mieux que le douzième temps en Q2, victime d’un énième pépin mécanique. "En Q1, la voiture était vraiment bonne, ce qui m’a valu un très bon cinquième temps", nous a-t-il confié. "Puis, j’ai rencontré un souci au niveau des échappements. J’ai dû regagner mo ...

Jean-Éric Vergne devrait pouvoir compter sur une Toro Rosso STR9 relativement performante qui pourrait lui permettre de se qualifier dans le top 10 ce week-end. Mais la fiabilité, essentielle pour que le Français puisse montrer ses qualités en piste depuis l’annonce de son éviction au profit de Max Verstappen, laisse quelque peu à désirer au vu des problèmes qu’il a rencontrés lors des essais libres de ce vendredi. Interrogé à ce propos par F1i, il estime cependant qu’il ...
