Lance Stroll

The lowdown on Lance Stroll

Ben Edwards' view

This is going to be a big step for Lance Stroll, who is making his debut in F1 in 2017.

The 18-year-old won the Formula Three Championship last year, but he’s now stepping up a couple of categories in one go.

We have seen that happen in the past, Max Verstappen has done it most recently of course, but Max comes from an even more immersed background perhaps than Stroll, who’s father owns a race circuit in Canada.

What Stroll does have is a great mentor in Felipe Massa, who I don’t think will be at all worried about giving him a few tips along the way.

Stroll has a massive amount of testing so now we just wait to see how this young man performs in the real pressure-cooker that is Formula One.
