Vergne rules himself out of Toro Rosso for 2015

Jean-Eric Vergne confirms that he will not be partnering Dutch rookie Max Verstappen at Toro Rosso in 2015.

Vergne, who has driven for the Italian team since graduating to Formula One racing via the Red Bull young driver programme in 2012, made the announcement on his official Twitter account.

The 24 year old has finished 17th, 15th and 13th overall in his three seasons to date.

One of the favourites to replace Vergne at Toro Rosso is recently-crowned Formula Renault 3.5 champion, Carlos Sainz Junior, having tested for Red Bull at this week’s test in Abu Dhabi.
