Biography

Despite joining the ABB FIA Formula E Championship back in Season 1 - making his debut for Andretti - it wasn't until Season 4 that the Frenchman broke through to take the championship title after a sensational season with Techeetah. 

For Season 5, Vergne remains with the Franco-Chinese team as it partners with DS Automobiles to become DS Techeetah. 

Despite taking Pole Position on his Formula E debut in Season One, the Frenchman's first victory didn't come until he joined Techeeath in Season 3, where he claimed an emotional maiden win in Montreal.

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.
