Mercedes to sign new F1 junior driver

Mercedes may be on the cusp of signing another youngster to its Formula 1 driver development program. Ekstra Bladet newspaper claims that Danish 19-year-old Frederik Vesti and his manager Dorte Riis Madsen, who used to work with Kevin Magnussen, have been in talks with the title-winning team for “several months”. Mercedes’ program is run by Gwen Lagrue, who has most recently championed the Formula 1 careers of George Russell and Esteban Ocon. Vesti finished fourth last year in his first season in the FIA Formula 3 championship, and in 2019 he won the Formula Regional European title.
