Lance Stroll on the importance of getting a good start

Lance Stroll has a disappointing qualifying record but his race pace has so far made up for this. He often makes up a number of places on the start and his first lap is always exciting. The Canadian enjoys making up these positions and believes that the start is the best place to overtake. 

"Every start is unique and you cannot predict what is coming to happen," Stroll was quoted by

"There is an element of risk like understanding where to position the car on the opening lap or where to overtake or take risks without too much consequence.

"We've definitely been good at picking up places on the opening lap and it's something we got to keep on doing.

"In modern-day F1 it can be such a track position race after lap one that it's extremely important to position your car and get a good launch off the line for the first lap."

Stroll will hope to start to qualify in a higher position as then when he makes his impressive starts he will be in a point's position and he will climb up the Championship ladder.
