Racing Career

2015: RoLFS & F3RWRS

After Hydook driver Benoît Voeckler was removed from their RoLFS team after instigating a number of collisions, Vergne got the nod to replace him by the RoLFS commission for the race at Westhill. He acquitted himself reasonably well, coming 12th in his heat. This was the first time he'd driven a car with approximately 500bhp and thus it seemed a good result, but it wasn't enough to get into the feature race. Hydook pulled out after that race, leaving Vergne without a seat.

Having driven for Octan in F3RWRS at the Monaco SuperPrix, he impressed the team enough to get offered a recall for the SuperPrix at Spa. However, their star driver Dorien Lamberigts ended up getting banned for the race at Germany and thus Vergne was called up to replace her. Some solid if unspectacular performances were what he managed, but was moved over when Lamberigts' ban had ended. Vergne was due to appear again for Octan for the Surfers' SuperPrix, but for some reason this never materialised.

2016: IFRC & F1RICS

Having strongly been linked to Fusion's F3RWRS team, he was confirmed alongside Jiri Komárek for the 2016 season. However, after Nebula Grand Prix took over Fusion's team, he was moved along to their IFRC team after their application for a second car was approved. He therefore joins Quentin Reatherson, whilst Thiago Mazzacane joins Komárek in F3RWRS. He also made a couple of appearances for Mastercard Lola in F1RICS.

Occupying the #40 car, Vergne managed to come 4th in his heat at Australia due to attrition, and took 13th in the feature race. However, no more points came in his remaining outings in Mexico and France; he failed to qualify for the Mexican feature race in particular. Having been disappointed with his lack of results, Vergne decided to move to America full-time with Mastercard Lola. David Tenpecost took Vergne's place at Nebula.
