Jean-Eric called the conditions for the return to Formula 1July 18, 2019
In the past weekend, Jean-Eric Verne won the title in Formula E, becoming the first double champion in the history of the electric series. The Frenchman, speaking from 2012 to 2014 for Toro Rosso, said he was ready to return to Formula 1, but only if he received an offer from one of the leading teams.
Jean-Eric Verne: “Probably, I agree. In my youth I played for a team of the middle group, and this is normal – in those years I had to show what I was capable of. But now I do not need to prove anything, speaking for a team from the middle of the peloton.
It is not interesting for me to fight for the eighth or ninth place, sometimes to earn points, sometimes not. I do not want to go to Formula 1 and be in a situation in which I already was. I like much more in Formula E, because here I am fighting for victories and titles, speaking in the leading team of the championship, which is quickly gaining popularity.
No one knows what will happen to Formula E in three years, but I’m not in a very bad situation. If I get a proposal – the key word here is “if”, from one of the leading teams of Formula 1, then I will consider it, but I have not received any offers “.
Vergne also commented on the performance of his compatriot Pierre Gasli: “Pierre is a very fast racer. I don’t know why he isn’t working, but I really hope that he will change the situation and make Max Verstappen’s life more difficult. ”
