    He's the guy who was behind 2nd McLaren driver last season, and now he is again behind him.:roflmao:

    Nice news for him, hope to see him in "starting line-up" soon.;)

    Stoffel looks like a very good driver.
    Just won his debut GP2 race.

    Part of me can see a Magnussen/Vandoorne partnership at McLaren in 2016 when Button retires.

    Excellent race from him. If Magnussen delivers this year they'll have to take Vandoorne on board as well next year at McLaren as the guys are pretty similar in speed.

    Brilliant result for The Stoff ;) In his debut GP2 race. And looks strong for tomorrow ( Sunday). Wish him all the best.

    Button won't be with McLaren by 2016.
    He'll be on his way to DTM

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race. Premium

    He is gifted. Its impressive that Magnussen had an edge on him, they are both special.
