McLaren racing director Eric Boullier has said that there are no plans to move reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne into a race seat with Manor, but refused to rule out the possibility of it happening in the future.
Vandoorne has been linked with a move to Manor who has a technical partnership with McLaren, to replace Rio Haryanto whose future is up in the air with it being widely believed that his initial contract with the team was only for 11 races.
"No," said Boullier when asked by Sky Sports' Ted Kravtiz about the possibility of Vandoorne being placed in a Manor seat.
"As part of the McLaren Honda family, if Manor want to race him we could consider him to race him this year, but nothing [has been discussed] so far."
