He was (don't know if he still is) in the same team as me in the league. Dude was one of the top drivers in the league which is already full of insanely fast drivers. I talk to him a bit and he seems to have a bright future. Not sure if he will make it to F1 though

As a Belgian, he would be my next hope to see another Belgian in F1 :)
Reigning FR2.0 champ, now moving to FR3.5. Same team as Frijns who won the championship last year. Good luck to Vandoorne.

I do wonder, however, what this means? How many drivers are there in Mclarens young driver programme? How many are there in the age bracket of Vandoorne?

The others signed on from what I know are Kevin Magnussen (Currently in FR 3.5), Oliver Turvey (Sim Driver) and Nyck De Vries who is managed by Anthony Hamilton. I don't think that it is quite as extensive as Red Bull's programme but both have produced world champions from it so they must be doing something right!

We might be very very distantly related. I wish him well, but everything will depend on his talent, because Belgians can't count on any sponsorship worth a F1 seat.

That's where I've heard him from! I've been googling and wikipediaing and couldn't work out where I'd heard his name. FSR it is :)

Fiki, your last name is "Vandoorne"?
I am hoping for another Belgian getting a decent shot at F1. It's been way too long since Thierry Boutsen.I know there was Gachot too but he became Frenchman and drove mostly uncompetitive cars.
