Stroll up beat after disappointing Turkish GP

Lance Stroll had a bizarre weekend in Turkey. Out of nowhere the Canadian drove his Racing Point to pole position and drove long laps in first spell during the Grand Prix. Unfortunately, the dream of victory fell apart after the first pit stop, but Stroll has learnt from this.


Stroll admitted in a Racing Point press release that he was very upset after the race, but now understands why he didn't have the speed to stay on the podium. "Obviously, at first I was frustrated by it all because after the amazing high of taking pole position, we led more laps than anyone else in the race only to not make the podium," said the 22 year old driver.

"Now that we’ve understood why the tyres didn’t perform as expected, I can take the positives from it all. The first stint - building a lead - showed what is possible and it’s all useful experience for the next time we’re fighting up near the front of the field," concluded Stroll.
