GP2: McLaren F1 test driver Stoffel Vandoorne to race in GP2 series in 2015

Adapted from press release

ART Grand Prix announced that McLaren F1 test driver, 22 year-old Belgian racer Stoffel Vandoorne will remain with the French based squad for his second consecutive season in the GP2 Series.

Vandoorne impressed from his debut in the series by winning the first feature race of the 2014 season in Bahrain before following up the superb performance with three more wins, four consecutive pole positions and a total of ten podium finishes to finish his rookie as runner-up in the F1 feeder series.

2015 will see him contest ART's colours once again with the main goal being to claim championship glory in the drivers' standings and to return the team to the head of the leaderboard, a position they have confidently held three times in the past.

“In the wake of a great season in 2014, I am very happy to continue with ART Grand Prix in GP2,” said Vandoorne.

“We showed we are the team to beat and many of our competitors have already pointed to us as their target, it's normal and rather flattering. I am confident because it will be my second year with a fantastic team that I know well. Apart from the DRS, the regulations won't change and I now have experience of the circuits, races, pit stops and tire management. The objective is clear: we want to win the title.”
