F1: McLaren adds Aston Martin’s Vandoorne, Drugovich to 2023 F1 reserve driver pool

McLaren and Aston Martin, who share engine partner Mercedes, have agreed to a deal where reigning Formula E champion Vandoorne and 2022 Formula 2 champion Drugovich will be made available to the Woking team in case it needs a replacement for regular drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri.

The deal covers the majority of the 2023 F1 season from the early March start in Bahrain until round 15, the Italian Grand Prix on the first weekend of September.
