Stoffel Vandoorne is now knocking on the door of performing “even better” than Fernando Alonso. That is the view of F1 legend Alain Prost, referring to the development this year of McLaren rookie Vandoorne.
“Everyone watched Vandoorne because, prior to coming into F1, he was recognised as one of the most exceptional youngsters for the future,” the Renault advisor told RTBF. “He started at McLaren with reliability problems and never the same equipment as Alonso,” Prost added.
“But I think Vandoorne is now playing on the same level or even better than Alonso. He’s doing his development in a perfect way,” he said.
