Lance Stroll: Racing Point have been punching above their weight for a long time

Lance Stroll is hopeful that Racing Point will continue to develop strong upgrades and that they can improve the speed of their car after the summer break. The team are in their first year having taken over from Force India at the end of last season. They will hope that they continue their development and become a real midfield force in the years to come. 

Before racing at Racing Point, Stroll raced for Williams and has compared the two teams strategies and situations. 

"I don't know if budget was really an issue (at Williams)," he was quoted by GPToday.net. "I think it's about focusing on the right areas of the car to work on and executing, bringing upgrades that are performing on track and that are curing our weaknesses."

Stroll is hopeful that Racing Point can continue to punch above their weight. 

"I believe that as a team we can do that, they've done it in the past. They've been punching above their weight for a long time, and last year definitely they made some improvements on the car throughout the course of the season. 

"So I'm very confident that we can do the same this year. As a team, we're all in it together. Checo and I are trying to guide the team as well as we can, giving them a clear direction on where we need to develop the car."

Racing Point are currently 8th in the constructor's championship and will hope to take the battle to Alfa Romeo who are only 1 point ahead of them in 7th.
