Stoffel Vandoorne to join Aston Martin as test and reserve driver

Reigning Formula E champion Stoffel Vandoorne will join Aston Martin in 2023 as test and reserve driver. The former McLaren Formula 1 driver will share the role with Felipe Drugovich, the 2022 Formula 2 champion who joined in September. Vandoorne, 30, has been Mercedes reserve driver since 2019, after losing his McLaren race seat at the end of the previous year. The move reunites him with two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso, who joins Aston Martin from Alpine next season and who was Vandoorne’s team-mate at McLaren in 2017 and 2018. Vandoorne and Brazilian Drugovich replace Nico Hulkenberg in the reserve role at Aston Martin.
