No guarantee I will be in F1 2016 – Vandoorne



No guarantee I will be in F1 2016 - Vandoorne
McLaren young ace Stoffel Vandoorne says there is no guarantee he will step up to the Formula 1 next year line-up, even if he wins this season’s GP2 championship title.

The Belgian speedy, who drives for ART Grand Prix, has been remarkable in his second GP2 season, winning four of the first ten races and now holding a lead of 65 points the drivers’ standings.

“It has always been a very competitive sport, everybody knows that,” Vandoorne said. “There have always been drivers that have done well and they haven’t got to Formula One. We know it is still similar at the moment, it’s a very competitive sport and even if I win the championship this season there is no guarantee that I will be in Formula One next year.

“I’m certainly trying my best and pushing really hard for it and I really hope to be there next year.”

When the source asked if he feels his form has been earning him consideration, Vandoorne replied: “I think it has to be, there’s not much more I can do at the moment.

“I’m trying to do the best as possible every race, every time I get in the car. Every practice session, every qualifying session I try to perform in the car and that’s ultimately what puts me in the best position for the future.”
