The 21-year-old Frenchman made his debut as the junior Red Bull team's new Friday driver in Korea.

Toro Rosso, currently fielding Sebastien Buemi alongside Jaime Alguersuari, is yet to decide its race driver lineup for next season.

"I see myself in one of the cars next year," the L'Equipe sports daily quotes Vergne as saying. "Then it will be good whoever is next to me.

"I definitely hope to be in the car next year, not just the Friday driving. I still have to do the job properly now, be fast, and Red Bull will do what it takes for me to be in F1."

As well as practicing in Abu Dhabi and Brazil, Vergne will also do the young driver tests with Toro Rosso in Abu Dhabi next month.
