Vandoorne to continue with McLaren

NEWS STORY
11/12/2014

Whilst attention at the McLaren Technology Centre focussed on Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, and to a lesser extent Kevin Magnussen, Belgian star Stoffel Vandoorne was also present.

When Ron Dennis was asked in Abu Dhabi about his 2015 line-up, aware that Alonso, Button and Magnussen were the names everyone's was talking about, the Briton added to the intrigue by saying that there were four drivers in the mix, leading to the assumption that Vandoorne might yet get the gig.

Even though he wasn't named during today’s press conference however, a McLaren spokesman was keen to point out that the Belgian, who finished runner-up in the 2014 GP2 Series, a year after finishing runner-up in Formula Renault 3.5, will continue with the Woking team.

"Stoffel is McLaren-Honda's Test & Development Driver," said the spokesman. "Kevin is McLaren-Honda's Test, Reserve & Third Driver. Both of them were present at today's McLaren-Honda press conference and both of them are and will continue to be integral members of the McLaren-Honda family.

"In addition, Stoffel's prime aim next season will be to win the GP2 Championship, which objective we at McLaren will be doing our utmost to assist."
