On Thursday morning, Aston Martin Formula 1 team confirmed their driver line-up for the 2022 season. There were some rumours about Sebastian Vettel's seat, but it was long presumed Lance Stroll would continue at the team. The team will stay with the same line-up, and Stroll insists he is hungry to up their game next season.

The 2021 season hasn't been groundbreaking for the team. Vettel has achieved a couple of podiums, but one was scrubbed off in Hungary due to a disqualification regarding the fuel levels. Stroll, who currently sits 13th in the World Championship, is hungry to improve when the new rules and regulations come into Formula 1 next season. 

“Next season I will be embarking on my sixth year in Formula One, alongside my team-mate Sebastian. We started this Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team campaign together and I greatly look forward to continuing the journey with him next year," Stroll said in the Aston Martin press release. 

"We have not achieved what we set out to do this year, but that has only amplified our hunger and drive for success next season. Now, with the prestige and support of Aston Martin, and the brilliant new sponsor-partners that such a prestigious brand has attracted, we are well-positioned to improve our performance in 2022.”
