On the grid because his family has deep pockets, or because he's genuinely quick enough to be there? For some given the disparaging tag of 'pay driver', it's often the former. For Lance Stroll, both can be true.

When your father Lawrence is a billionaire businessman who part-owns the Aston Martin F1 team, you've been dealt a good hand. But while dad's cash helped to kick-start his junior career in quality machinery, Stroll Jr. was rapid enough to win in it. Multiple karting titles, the Italian F4 championship and the Formula 3 European crown preceded Stroll's F1® arrival with Williams in 2017, and he was on the podium in Azerbaijan in his eighth Grand Prix.

Stroll will soon have over 100 F1® races under his belt, and anyone with his feel in the wet and penchant for first-lap passing should hang around for a good while yet, bloodlines or not.
