Stoffel Vandoorne says he will only agree to return to Formula 1 if he is offered "favourable conditions".

The Belgian has lost his place at McLaren and acknowledges that his chances of finding another seat are basically "zero".

Stoffel remains hopeful

"Breathing in some new air will make me feel good. The last seasons at McLaren were not easy, and the team had its worst years ever," Vandoorne told the Belgian broadcaster RTBF, as he hinted about his impending Formula E move.

The 26-year-old is not ruling out a return to formula one in the future.

"Somehow I will try to stay in touch with F1. Exactly how I don't know, but if I ever return, I won't just do anything. No, it must be with favourable conditions," Vandoorne said.
