'Sky Sports commented that Vergne was supposed to "blow the doors off Ricciardo this season, but it's not happening" - Martin Brundle'

Give it time - i'm sure the Vergne explosion is just around the corner - he has just had teething troubles but when he settles he'll unleash hell on his team-mate - trust me I understand how the sport works better than 99.9999% of people.
