Jean-Eric Vergne could be set to step into the reserve driver role at Ferrari. The former Toro Rosso racer and now Formula E star was a test driver at Ferrari last year, focusing on work in the simulator.
But as 2015 Ferrari reserve Esteban Gutierrez now steps up to a Haas race seat, Frenchman Vergne could be set for a promotion. Asked about the speculation, the 25-year-old told NBC Sports: "Yeah, things will change a little bit. It will be announced quite soon." Asked if it will be the Ferrari reserve role, he added: "We'll see. Maybe." (GMM)
