Mick Schumacher teams up with Vettel at Race of Champions.
And I hate some in Mclaren to have destroyed it (how much blame Stoffel has or how much fault lies with some in Mclaren, that I can’t assess from here). Sadly it has been a dirty game But I will let it rest, because there is no benefit for anybody to drag it on. The whispers of interest from Toro Rosso and Sauber intensified in recent weeks as it became more and more obvious McLaren boss Zak Brown was set to jettison Vandoorne. It would be good for Belgium to have another F1 driver. And we don’t know what the driver market is going to do in the future. It’s hard to tell. So it’s good to be involved and to be prepared for anything that comes up.”. He added: “It is promising because we know that with the package we have when everything runs more or less smooth I don’t think it’s the quickest that’s for sure. “But it has some pace in there, we can fight for some decent results. “But it’s just a matter of we need clean weekends without problems and that is going to be our target to achieve.”.

Stoffel Vandoorne confirms Formula E move in 2019.
Off the top of my head, I can think of good or stand-out drives or moments for all the other drivers on the grid this year. Here are all the interesting stats to come out of a great weekend of racing at Silverstone. These guys are so good to be in F1, none of them should get beaten all the time. Vandoorne smashed his way to the title, ending his time in GP2 with a record number of poles, wins and podiums. With Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso locked into the team’s race seats, though, there was no room for Vandoorne, prompting McLaren to pack him off to Japan for a season in Super Formula with the Honda-backed Docomo Team Dandelion Racing squad in 2016. Vandoorne has also been linked with a move to Formula E, which will begin its fifth season three weeks after the end of F1’s 2018 campaign, though he denied having already tested an FE car.
