Simulator driver leaves McLaren

A developing driver has left McLaren.

In February, Dutchman Nyck de Vries said he hopes that after George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon, he will be the next to graduate from Formula 2.

"I don’t want to sound arrogant at all, but Norris and Albon were really no better than me," the 24-year-old said.

But now, De Telegraaf newspaper reports that de Vries has stopped working as McLaren’s simulator driver.

"I no longer do simulator work for McLaren," he confirmed.

"Will I for another team? I can’t say anything else about it," de Vries added.

"Ultimately, it will be all about what I am doing here," he said, referring to Formula 2 and his chances of moving up to F1.

"That will have the most influence on my future, so I am mainly concerned with that."
