Biography

The name Stroll is an important one for Racing Point. Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll leads the team’s ownership group and this year his son Lance moves to the team from Williams.

The 20-year-old has had a tough two years in F1®. There have been times when he has looked like a rising star and he scored a podium finish in only his eighth Grand Prix, in Azerbaijan in 2017. But there have also been times when he has looked like a young man who made the jump into F1® too early.

Two of Stroll’s former Formula 3 rivals, Lando Norris and George Russell, arrive in Formula 1® this season after taking a more conventional route through Formula 2 and Stroll should be well-placed to be ahead of them. But he will also have to be close to Perez, or ahead of him, if he is to be considered a successor to some of Canada’s greatest Formula 1® drivers.
