Jean-Éric Vergne

Formula E Driver

Team DS Techeetah

Born on 25 avril 1990
in Pontoise, France
 

Jean-Éric Vergne is Formula E’s sole two-time champion (2017-2018 season and 2018-2019 season). After spending several years in Formula 1 (58 Grand Prix starts), the Frenchman took part in his first E-Prix at Punta Del Este (Uruguay) in December 2014. He will go down in history as the first driver to secure pole position on his debut in the series. After initially racing for DS Performance, he joined the TECHEETAH team at the start of the 2016-2017 season, which became DS TECHEETAH from the 2018-2019 campaign.

In 2019-2020, although he made a telling contribution to DS TECHEETAH winning the teams championship, he was unable to claim a hat-trick of drivers’ titles, losing out to his team-mate Antonio Felix Da Costa.
