But he will also stay in touch with F1.
"We like Stoffel a lot," Gwen Lagrue, who is the head of Mercedes’ driver development programme and George Russell’s manager, told RTBF.
"We need his expertise and his talent for simulator work, and we’ll see in the future if this opens up other opportunities.
