Spoiled and rich, this is the overall impression that many fans had of Lance Stroll, the first time he appeared in the Circus. The Canadian focused on his driving techniques and proved them wrong, obtaining a great second place in 2019 and several podiums in 2020 with Racing Point. The following season will be the perfect moment for him to show up more consistency and definitely prove that he is a driver who deserved to race in F1. During the Aston Martin unveil , Lance Stroll commented his new baby calling it “extremely attractive”.
“This time of the year is thrilling – he stated - the launch of the car is the moment in which everything seems more real, especially this year with our new identity as Aston Martin."
He confirmed his new teammate impressions, saying that it is impossible indeed to shape up a concrete opinion before he can finally have the chance to drive it but he highlighted the good performances he obtained in the course of the last season, calling them good but adding that this year they can aim for more.
“Last season we had great performances but we can do best. Our goal, this year, is to achieve the 3rd place in the Constructors’ Standing, the one we missed out in 2020. We can accomplish that, if not more – he blinked – I am an improved driver after the last season and I want to improve even more. This will be my fifth year in Formula 1. It seems impossible; it seems only yesterday when I was coming by for the first time, but I have a great feeling with these people, we haver a deep bond”
“From my side, pushing to finish up at the front top five in the championship, that would be a great achievement.
“Last year we were sitting fourth for such a long time and then had some misfortune that set us back, but it goes to show that the potential is there if we just execute [it] and focus on the job.”
This young guy is greedy for wins and podiums this year and finally the waiting is almost over to see if he will have the car to achieve them.
