De Vries almost gave up on F1

Nyck de Vries says he “almost gave up” on his Formula 1 career. “There were phases when I almost gave up,” Speed Week quotes de Vries as saying. But de Vries says his trajectory to F1 “stalled” as the McLaren junior deal went stale. I did a DTM test with Audi and a GT test with Ferrari and seriously considered giving up my dream of Formula 1.”. A financial saviour in the form of Ricardo Gelael brought de Vries into Formula 1 “and from there, finally, my career went up again”. “I left McLaren because I didn’t feel it would lead to anything even if I won Formula 2,” he explained.
