Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne need to really shine if they are to be promoted by Red Bull.
That is the claim of Jacques Villeneuve, the outspoken 1997 world champion turned television pundit.

Romain Grosjean, denounced by Mark Webber last year as the ‘first lap nutcase’, insists he has changed for the better ahead of the 2013 season.
But 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve doesn’t think so. “The only reason he has the chance of winning is because he has an incredible car,” French Canadian Villeneuve, who has been signed up by F1′s new French broadcaster Canal+ for 2013, said.
