Biography

Jean-Eric Vergne has the unique distinction of being the only driver to race for three different Formula E teams.

He made a stunning debut for Andretti on his Formula E debut in Season One, taking pole position and being a contender for victory until suspension problems ended his challenge. A move in Season Two to DS Virgin Racing allowed him to add to his pole tally but victory still proved elusive.

For Season Three he switched to the new TECHEETAH team, and at the final round of the season in Montreal, finally he broke his duck with an emotional maiden win.

During his junior career ‘JEV’ was supported by Red Bull, and with its backing he won the 2010 British F3 championship. That winter he made his Formula 1 test debut for Toro Rosso. He finished second in the Formula Renault 3.5 series a year later, which earned him the opportunity to test the Red Bull car and a promotion to the Toro Rosso race team.

Over the next three seasons he took part in 58 grands prix, scoring 51 points and a best finish of sixth.
