“Stoffel Vandoorne is too slow for the F1”

At Toro Rosso, after the confirmation of Daniil Kvyat as a rider one racezitje free for the season 2019. That racezitje will certainly not be to our fellow countryman, Stoffel Vandoorne, as has Dr. Helmut Marko let you know.

After the announcement of his departure from McLaren was hoping Stoffel Vandoorne possibly a racezitje at the F1 teams, Sauber or Toro Rosso to score. At Sauber is that chance there is not more in, while Toro Rosso theoretically still a possibility because only one of the two riders officially confirmed.

Really hope to have a racezitje in the Formula 1 does Vandoorne, however, and but best also. On a racezitje at Toro Rosso should be Stoffel Vandoorne then also no more hope. Red Bull advisor Dr. Helmut Marko said as opposed to the “RTBF” very clear language.

“We will Stoffel don’t take it,” said Marko. “I think that he simply is not fast enough for the F1!”

A very hard and painful decision of Dr. Helmut Marko about Stoffel Vandoorne, if you ask them any nuance. In the past Helmut Marko Vandoorne ever made an offer which our countryman kindly thanked. Dr. Helmut Marko is someone of honour, and it was also in advance a lost cause for Vandoorne, with Toro Rosso he would that alone not can get.

Nicer words for Vandoorne came from Mercedes-motorsportbaas Toto Wolff.

“I’ve Stoffel always like to see drive, he was a brilliant rider in the junior race series,” said Toto Wolff. “We now have to see to understand why it for him in Formula 1 didn’t work, but perhaps there will soon be news about him.”

“I think his character and his speed in the Mercedes could be fit, for the time being, however, to wait and see,” which allows the Mercedes-motorsportbaas seems to allude to a possible racezitje for Vandoorne at the German Formula E-team HWA that Mercedes is closely connected.
