Similar to last year’s test driver Daniel Ricciardo in 2010, Jean-Eric was runner up in this year’s Formula Renault 3.5 series. He has been with the Red Bull Junior Team since 2007 and in 2010 he won the British Formula Three Championship. This year he completed Friday driving duties for Scuderia Toro Rosso at the Japanese Grand Prix.

Jean-Eric said: “I’m really looking forward to driving the RB7 in Abu Dhabi. I know the track already and have had some track time in a Formula One car this year, which will help.

I’m extremely happy that Red Bull Racing has given me this opportunity, it will be a massive experience for me and to be driving the best Formula One car is something quite amazing. I will make the best out of the three days, it will be an important three days and I’m looking forward to it.”
