Aston Martin is a team that is
very carefully but steadily in record time being transformed into a top team. Lawrence Stroll leaves no stone unturned in achieving this goal. But with a top team, there comes the question whether the current drivers are the right drivers to propel the team forward into a desired dominance.
This thread is about Lance Stroll. After being out performed last season by Vettel, how long will his father keep up with his performances? Will he have to step up his game? Or is he worthy enough for a seat at Aston Martin indefinetely?
I am of the opinion that Lance is a good driver. But he never will be a giant slayer. This would mean that Aston Martin currently has a Renault-esque (2005-2006) lineup. With a very good first driver and a decent one in the second seat. In my book, Lawrence Stroll would be better off to add a proven race winner into the second seat to push the team forward. A driver that knows how to get his head down and drag incredible results out of a car that no one expects. Gasly springs to mind. Lance simply isnt the right guy for the team in my opinion.
So, how many seasons until Lawrence Stroll boots his kid out of the seat? I'd say; if he fails on outperforming his teammates for two more seasons, so at the end of 2023, Lawrence will look on.
