    Achievements IT'S OVER 9000!
    Jean-Eric Vergne has been dropped by Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso for 2015, the Frenchman has announced.Vergne, 24, had hoped to retain his place following the promotion of Daniil Kvyat to Red Bull to replace Ferrari-bound Sebastian Vettel.
    But he said on Twitter: "Despite a good season and 22 points, I'll not drive any more for Toro Rosso in 2015."
    Toro Rosso have not announced who will replace him as partner to 17-year-old Dutchman Max Verstappen.
    The favourite is Spaniard Carlos Sainz, the son of the rally legend of the same name, who drove for Red Bull at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi over the last two days.
    Red Bull said that the drivers in the running for the seat alongside Verstappen were Sainz, Vergne, Britain's GP3 champion Alex Lynn and Frenchman Pierre Gasly.
    [COLOR=#1C1C1C][FONT=arial]Vergne's future remains in doubt. There are no race seats open for him in Formula 1 but he may hold out hope for a role as reserve driver or be forced to look for a drive in another series.

    I feel bad for JEV. He drove his heart out this season yet it still wasn't enough to keep his seat.

    re Abu Dhabi, That was a bit of an anti climax in the end eh :L

    Thats the thing that pisses me off with the red bull driver program is the way they just sorta dispose of half decent drivers. Liuzzi maybe, Algersuari, Buemi and now Vergne. Obviously they aren't on the same level as Ricciardo, Kyvat and Vettel, but they could do a shift for several teams out there...Caterham, Sauber.....Marussia if they survive.....


    But hey, they don't have major sponsors backing them.....

    No surprise about JEV at STR. The handwriting had been on the wall for a while. STR is Red Bull's feeder/developmental team, so drivers only get a few years before they either move up to Red Bull or move on to somewhere else.
    JEV is a good driver but he will never drive for Red Bull, so it makes no sense to stick with him when they could instead go with one of their younger drivers who they feel may eventually be good enough for a Red Bull seat but need a few years at STR to develop.

    Same here, really hope McLaren can at least be fighting for podiums next year! Might be a little too early for race wins though!
