The pilot of McLaren Stoffel Vandorn stated that Fernando Alonso is his main rival, but not a mentor.
Reporter Brazilian Globo has compared the situation of the Belgian McLaren with the position of the lance Stroll, mentor which in 2017 became the highly experienced Felipe Massa. But Stoffel did not like such a comparison.
“No! It is not, – said Vandorn in comments to the Globo. – Of course, you and Fernando work together as advocate in the same team, but he’s not worth me explaining what to do.
We are open with each other, and we had a normal relationship outside of the race track. However, Alonso didn’t come here to be my mentor. Perhaps, it is necessary to lance, I don’t know.
Alonso is probably the best benchmark in F1. We compete, and this is a normal situation”.
Recall that in 2017, Alonso brought to McLaren 15 points and Vandorn – 13 credits.
