Mercedes EQ ABB FIA Formula E driver Stoffel Vandoorne made his NTT IndyCar Series debut with Arrow McLaren SP at Sebring International Raceway on Monday.
The Belgian, driving Pato O’Ward’s No.5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet stated:
“Today was my first experience in INDYCAR. I had a really great day testing the Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet. Before I came out here, I spoke to a lot of people about racing or driving an Indy car, Felix [Rosenqvist] being one of them. It was kind of what I expected more or less. I did a simulator day before coming out here but the real car is always something different. It is pretty much everything that everyone’s been on about. It’s a very big car, powerful and a heavy steering wheel. You’re really fighting the car a lot, so it’s really a beast of a car to hustle around a track. It was a positive day, we managed to cover a lot of laps and get through a big testing program. I’m happy we managed to cover everything without any issues. I just want to say thanks to Arrow McLaren SP for giving me the opportunity, and it was a great experience for me to try out INDYCAR. Let’s see what the future will bring.”
