Vergne to carry out Red Bull test

Jean-Eric Vergne to conduct Red Bull testing duties in Abu Dhabi
Red Bull Racing has confirmed that Jean-Eric Vergne will get the chance to sample the title-winning RB7 during the upcoming young driver test in Abu Dhabi.

The Red Bull Junior driver, who finished second in the Renault World Series standings this season, took part in Friday practice with Toro Rosso in Korea and is set to take on the role again in both Abu Dhabi and Brazil.

However, the French driver will now get the chance to driver for Red Bull in the three-day long Abu Dhabi test, which will run from 15-17 November.

“I'm really looking forward to driving the RB7 in Abu Dhabi,” he said. “I know the track already and have had some track time in a Formula One car this year, which will help. I'm extremely happy that Red Bull Racing has given me this opportunity, it will be a massive experience for me and to be driving the best Formula One car is something quite amazing.

“I will make the best out of the three days, it will be an important three days and I'm looking forward to it.”

Well how about Buemi Alguersari and Riciardo. Buemi and Alguersauari have really done the most with what they were given this year. With all the investment they put in them, the Red Bull brass should really test them out in the leading car before looking at other potential drivers when Mark Webber decides to leave. Sure they're not getting the results Vettel used to get, but in those days, Torro Rosso used to drive Red Bull's old chassis. Can't do that anymore. Imagine if Torro Rosso had Red Bull's chassis from last year.
