Stof­fel keen

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mclaren re­serve driver Stof­fel Van­doorne is con­fi­dent that his move into the Ja­panese Su­per For­mula se­ries will boost his chances of an F1 drive in 2017 and not hin­der them. Van­doorne is wary of suf­fer­ing the same fate as Kevin Mag­nussen, who did not race last year and left the team when his chances of an F1 seat dried up. Van­doorne said when asked about how his po­si­tion with the team com­pared to Mag­nussen’s: “We are dif­fer­ent. Kevin came off the back of an F1 cam­paign and was re­serve for a sea­son with­out pos­si­bil­i­ties to race any­thing be­side that. If the Su­per For­mula deal goes ahead I will also get some rac­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”
