Stoffel Vandoorne on Brown’s list for driving the 3rd McLaren in Indy Car!


Stoffel Vandoorne was at Laguna Seca this weekend to attend the Indy Car event. McLaren boss Zak Brown was also there and confirmed that a third McLaren car entered by Andretti-Ganassi would be entered, with the support of Arrow, in 2023 or even in the second part of the season alongside the two cars already awarded to Pato. O Ward and Félix Rosenqvist.

Who will be the lucky 3rd elected? Nothing is decided yet, but Zak Brown said that « Stoffel Vandoorne is a very good driver and is clearly considered for this wheel which one wishes to award for five years. »

Is the Belgian still under contract with Mercedes in 2022 for Formula E interested in the American single-seater? According to his manager Alessandro Alunni Bravi, the answer is obviously positive: « There are several options for 2023, » indicates the Italian manager. « Formula E, the WEC with a manufacturer, but also the Indy Car. We will of course give the priority to Mercedes if they want to offer us a sports program, but if this is not the case, the American track is to study seriously. Stoffel kept very good contacts with McLaren and Zak Brown. The Indy Car has changed generation and we have recently seen that pilots from Europe like Marcus Ericsson, Alex Palou and more recently Romain Grosjean could play in front from the start. Stoffel has the capacity to fight for victory in all the championships and certainly also in Indy where we also have other contacts. So yes, if Mercedes has nothing to offer us and if McLaren made him an offer, Stoffel would be very happy to participate in the Indy Car 2023. «
