Vergne to test RB7

Jean-Eric Vergne will drive the championship-winning Red Bull RB7

in the Abu Dhabi young driver tests on November 15-17.

"I'm really looking forward to it," Vergne said. "I know the track already and have had some track time in an F1 car this year, which will help. It will be a massive experience for me and to be driving the best F1 car is something quite amazing. It will be an important three days."

Like Daniel Ricciardo, who drove for Red Bull in last year's test, ex-British F3 champion Vergne finished runner-up in this year's Formula Renault 3.5 series. He has been a Red Bull junior team driver since 2007 and in took part in the first session of Friday practice at Suzuka for Toro Rosso.
