Stroll: I think it is a massive opportunity going into next year

2019 marked a season of ups and downs for Lance Stroll as he managed to show some of his skills but was still a fair margin behind his teammate Sergio Perez. However, the Canadian is optimistic heading into the 2020 season.

Stroll finished down in 15th in the Drivers' Championship but had a season-high finish of fourth at the German Grand Prix. Sergio Perez, who finished tenth after a strong second half of the season, told Motorsport.com of Racing Point's potential and Stroll echoed what his teammate had to say.

"I think it is a massive opportunity going into next year [2020] to pick up form," Stroll told Motorsport.com.

"Everyone's going to keep working as hard as they can over the winter, that's the game, but hopefully we will make the biggest jump.

"So I really do look forward to next year. If I look back on this year, we came into the season with some struggles because of where we were this time last year and the troubles that the team had and that really delayed the process of development.

"So if I look at where we where we stand now and going into next year, definitely we got a head start on where we were this time last year, so that really does excite me.

"But it is such a competitive midfield now that will only find out when Melbourne comes around."
