Lance Stroll believes he could've done more during Belgian GP

Lance Stroll believes that he could have secured a better result than P10 in Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix if it wasn't for traffic he encountered during the race.

Starting down in P16, Stroll typically got a brilliant start and made up places on the first lap, a feature of his racing.

However, the Canadian was stuck behind drivers on other strategies for much of the race, costing him the opportunity to score more points.

He said in Racing Point's press release: "Both cars in the top ten means good points for the team. I am quite pleased to score a point from P16 on the grid, but it was a bit frustrating because I spent the whole race stuck in traffic, behind cars on different strategies, so it was tough to get clean air and really push on.

"In hindsight, I think that’s where we lost a lot of race time compared to other drivers, such as Kvyat and Albon, who managed to get in front of us during the race.

"We gave it a good go though: I was right behind Gasly towards the end and I almost got him. If it wasn’t for the yellow flag on the last lap, I think I could have got him."
