Vandoorne not thinking about a seat at Williams: 'Don't think only about F1'.

Formula 1 is Formula 1, one of the biggest championships in the world with the fastest cars. If an opportunity comes up I will definitely think about it. Of course I was not there in the best of circumstances, it was the two worst years in the history of McLaren. If the opportunity arises I will definitely think about it but it's not like I only think about F1 the whole day long.

Chance in F1

Vandoorne made his debut in Formula 1 back in 2016 with a single race for McLaren as a substitute for Fernando Alonso, and was given the chance to prove himself in the sport full-time in 2017. However, the Belgian stepped in at McLaren at the worst possible moment in history, and did so alongside Fernando Alonso.

''Formula 1 is Formula 1, one of the biggest championships in the world with the fastest cars. If an opportunity comes up I will definitely think about it. Of course I was not there in the best of circumstances, it was the two worst years in the history of McLaren. If the opportunity arises I will definitely think about it but it's not like I only think about F1 all day long'', says Vandoorne at Motorsport.com.

De Vries to Williams?

The fact that Vandoorne's name is not mentioned at Williams is strange given his past, but Vandoorne himself is not that concerned with it. ''Our goal is to defend both titles. We won the team championship and Nyck won the drivers' title. Next year I will be hunting for that drivers' title. So it is still an important year. That's where all the attention goes, to be successful''.

''At the moment I am focusing on Formula E. I want to perform as well as possible there. Recently we were very successful and won some races. The goal is to win titles there'', concludes the Belgian.
