Vandoorne admits to looking outside F1

Sep.17 (GMM) Stoffel Vandoorne has admitted he may continue his motor racing career outside of formula one.

After a highly promising junior career, the Belgian has lost his full-time McLaren seat after two seasons and is unlikely to find another cockpit elsewhere.

“Staying in F1 is still possible but the chances are very, very, very small,” the 26-year-old told Belgian broadcaster RTBF.

“The market has changed a lot over the last weeks, but nothing is decided yet,” Vandoorne added. “We’re even looking outside of F1, and I hope to have something very soon.

“There are other championships where the level is very high, and where there are a lot of people who still believe in my talent. I’m still the driver I was before who is able to win races and championships.

“I am convinced that in another environment I can do it again,” he said.
