The Singapore Grand Prix got off to a late start due to heavy rain around the Marina Bay Street Circuit. It was a race everybody was excited for, but still expected to be tough, and it was. Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll had not been getting the best results, but it was finally time for him to pick up pace and finish up with a bunch of points.
“Yeah for sure, I think for whatever reason it feels we’ve got a lot of P10s this year, like chances to get P7 or whatever and it just didn’t go that way, a bunch of P10s and today things just went our way and got a bunch of points. It’s been a long time coming but nice we finally get it,” said the Canadian.
He was asked about the wait for the asphalt to dry up, as it just seemed to go on and on, a tricky situation, something that Lance himself described as tricky.
“It took a really long time to dry today. Just the difference in asphalt between the old and the new is very different. The old drying much quicker so just waiting for the new asphalt to catch up and dry out and when it did it was alright, but it was still tricky,” he stated.
The Singapore GP is Stroll’s best result yet this current season. Aston Martin began the year fighting but since race 4 or 5 has been picking up pace and gaining a couple of places up in the Constructors' Championship, something important motivation-wise.
He declared that it was important for sure, they want to beat the competing teams and the points scored today were good for that. “We gotta just try and keep doing that,” he claimed.
