Stroll believes Kubica can turn Williams' fortunes around

Lance Stroll believes Robert Kubica will benefit Williams, and help turn its Formula 1 problems into positive results.

Stroll is departing Williams, and Kubica is his replacement, where the returning F1 driver will be alongside George Russell, for his rookie season in the competition.

Williams finished rock-bottom of the constructors' championship in 2018, with just seven points secured all season - six of them from Stroll.

Kubica is completing a remarkable comeback to F1, after an eight-year absence from the sport following severe hand injuries from a rally-car crash.

"Robert's been very helpful," Stroll told Crash.netwith the Canadian joining Racing Point for the 2019 campaign. "He just has a good view on things and he's very passionate. I wish him all the best for (2019).

"His recovery's been incredible, what he's been through I couldn't even imagine. It's great to see him back on the grid. I'm sure the team can turn things around and I'm sure that he'll be a big help."

Stroll is joining Racing Point, formerly Force India, seemingly because of his father - Lawrence Stroll; who has took over the team after saving them from administration.

The young Canadian will drive alongside Sergio Perez in his first season with the British-based team.
