Driver Spotlight : Jean-Eric Vergne

Since a few drivers from 2011 have been .. ahem.. replaced, I thought it would be nice to have a spotlight on some of the new faces on the grid. Of course, if you are looking for a biography, statistics, or analysis of their driving… you should probably head elsewhere (you know… like to a proper F1 fansite). Cuz this is thepitwalk, and this blog tends to focus on the superficial. πŸ˜‰

So … what do we think about Jean-Eric Vergne? He’s no pretty boy, that’s for sure. It’s a bit of a stretch, but I can only think of Vergne as a Buemi replacement, especially with that backwards cap. πŸ˜›

Vergne seems to be fond of scarves, wearing them both on and off the track. Remember, a scarf is an absolute must for some F1 drivers (coughcough Rosberg):

Oh well, time will tell whether Vergne is F1 Top Model material or not. But based on what I’ve seen so far, I’d say … not. πŸ˜‰

    re looks: I agree on the Buemi replacement. Vergne too might be better off keeping his helmet on :p

    There was a quote that he thinks he can do no worse than Webber if he got a seat…up to now I don’t think he’s all that flash even though supposedly he did well in the young drivers test but as they say you do the talking on the track so let’s see how he goes!

    lol @ keeping the helmet on. We’ll see how Vergne drives soon enough… but seriously Toro Rosso dumping Wolfman was very sad for me.
