I think I remember seeing an article somewhere in which Alonso had made a similar comment regarding Vandoorne's contribution.

It's always unfortunate for a driver that deals with a team in the doldrums. Helps them move forward, but then is not around to reap the rewards.

I think we’ve seen in sportscars that Stoffel’s talent is still there

I agree with that.

Agreed.
And despite him being underwhelming (in comparison) on his return, I still put a lot of Mercedes' resurgence down to Schumacher's work in 2010-12.

Mr Seidl has apparently convinced the McLaren owners to throw a metric truckload of cash at a new on-site wind tunnel...

And has brought a stability (from the outside looking in you see) to the technical group that doesnt seem to have been there for a little while.

It does have you wondering whether the Honda mess would have been such a mess with Mr Seidl in the driver's seat as it were....
