And it appears as though another name is being lined up by Mercedes to become the seventh member of their junior programme.

According to Ekstra Bladet, Danish 19-year-old Frederik Vesti is ‘close’ to signing a contract with Mercedes.

It is claimed that Vesti and his manager Dorte Riis Madsen, who used to work with Kevin Magnussen, have been in talks with Mercedes for several months.

Vesti, 19, has already worked his way up to the third-tier of the Formula One feeder championship in F3.

He made his debut in the feeder series last year joining Prema Racing, finishing fourth in the championship with three race wins.
