Force India: Lance Stroll is a great driver with potential

The move from Williams to Force India is still expected to be made by Lance Stroll during the winter. Still, there's been no official confirmation, but Otmar Sznafnauer demonstrates his interests in the young Canadian driver.

Lawerence Stroll, the father of Lance, owns the Force India team after buying them out of administration. Everyone expects them to partner up, and now even more so after Sznafnauer spoke to Planet F1.

"I do not know him well yet, but from the outside, I have seen him do a good job. Last year he finished three points behind Felipe Massa. When Sergey Sirotkin came to Williams, everyone said the Russian was very fast in qualifying, but Lance beat him," Szafnauer said.

"Everything indicates that we are dealing with a great driver. He is still very young, but we will help him to develop further. We know better than anyone how to train young drivers. Just look at Nico Hulkenberg, Paul di Resta, Jules Bianchi and many others."

Stroll has scored all but one of Williams' seven points this season. In a struggling Williams, he's done well to get ahead of a Toro Rosso in the standings.
