Lance Stroll’s debut Formula 1® season in 2017 was a roller coaster of sorts, with the highlight being his shock third placing at Azerbaijan.
Stroll partnered Felipe Massa in 2017, and with the veteran’s retirement, the Canadian will have himself a new teammate in 2018.
Born in Montreal, his father Lawrence Stroll, who is a businessman and racing enthusiast, encouraged his interest in racing. He bought him his first kart and Lance responded by winning his first race and title three years later.
Lance went on to be selected for Ferrari’s driver academy in 2010 and then had a successful entry to single-seater racing. He finished fifth and survived a few heavy crashes in his debut season in European F3 in 2015, before winning the series the following year.
