Lance Stroll in F1
Lance Stroll has struggled to shake the tag of being a pay driver since making his F1 debut with Williams in 2017 with his father, Lawrence Stroll, worth 3.2billion USD.
Aside from his final season in the junior ranks, a season spent in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, there was little about his progression that suggested the Canadian would make it to F1. But in the 2016 season, Stroll dominated the championship beating drivers of a high calibre including George Russell, Callum Ilott and Anthoine Hubert.
Having joined Williams as the team began its slide towards the back of the grid, Stroll struggled in early races but took advantage of some crazy circumstances in Azerbaijan to score his first F1 podium in just his eighth race, finishing third.
Ending the year 12th, Stroll endured a far tougher 2018 with Williams as the team hit what it had hoped was rock bottom. Scoring just six points across 21 races, the Canadian ended the year 18th.
Stroll's 2019 move to Racing Point was clearly signposted during the '18 season after a consortium led by his father Lawrence acquired the Silverstone-based team.
Moving to a better performing team but again, it was a difficult year with Stroll scoring only 21 points compared to team-mate Sergio Perez's 52.
In the Covid-affected 2020 season, Stroll began to shift opinions, however. In the first half of the season, aside from a retirement in the opening race of the year, Stroll scored in every race and stood on the podium for the second time of his career at the Italian Grand Prix.
A crash at Mugello appeared to knock the Canadian however, and Stroll dropped out of the top 10 by the end of the year despite another podium in Sakhir.
After Racing Point was rebranded to Aston Martin over the winter, Stroll enjoyed a solid although not spectacular start to the year.
In a compact midfield, the Canadian was consistently on the fringes of the top 10.
With a regulation reset for 2022, Stroll will hope the team can provide a competitive car for him to prove his potential.
