Former Formula 1 driver Stoffel Vandoorne is enjoying his time away from Formula 1 and is not missing the political side of the sport.
Belgian Formula 1 driver Stoffel Vandoorne currently drives as a teammate of Fernando Alonso. Vandoorne left a great impression in the GP2 series and the Super Formula, prompting McLaren to sign him as a reserve driver. During the Grand Prix of Bahrain in 2016, the Belgian made his Formula 1 debut as a substitute for Jenson Button and finished in the points directly. In 2017, Vandoorne completed his first full season for McLaren. Partly due to the reliability and performance issues of McLaren, the Belgian driver has not yet been able to live up to expectations. He will leave Formula 1 for Formula E at the end of 2018, as he will be replaced by McLaren youth driver Lando Norris.
