Stage in Australia was the first for Lance Stroll at Racing Point, his father’s team. Canadian confidently spent the race and earned two points for ninth place. In the Racing Point are pleased with the performances of Lance and are confident that in the course of the season he will continue to progress.
“Lance received a credit of trust,” quotes the head of the team, Otmar Safnauer RaceFans. – It is impossible to win in the younger racing series, not knowing how to pilot the car. He won everywhere. We expected him to show himself well.
He failed to qualify. On Saturday, he rode at the same pace as Sergio Perez, and if he had not been disturbed by Grosjean, Lance would have reached the final. In the race, he traveled almost the entire distance on an empty track, because he was on an alternative strategy, and therefore showed good results on the circle. Then he came under pressure from Kviyat and Gimme. Lance did not make a single mistake and piloted well.
Lance is as fearless a racer as Sergio. I am sure we are waiting for the race, when they will fight with each other. We needed two good drivers, and we got them. “
Technical team director Andy Green confirms the words of Saphnauer: “In the race, his lap time was seventh. When we asked Lance to attack, he attacked and was not mistaken. He was very mature defensively – it’s nice to see such a job. ”
