F1 Podcast: Is Lance Stroll holding Aston Martin back?

We ask if Lance Stroll’s performances are good enough for the Aston Martin Formula 1 team in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Ben Anderson and Valentin Khorounzhiy join Edd Straw to evaluate Stroll’s season and the progress he’s made since his F1 debut in 2017.

We run through the statistics of his year, with the most concerning one the 80-point gap between him and team-mate Fernando Alonso, and pick out the high and low points.

We ask how much potential there is still to be exploited for Stroll, and what the chances are of him emerging as a driver who can get the consistently good results a team of Aston Martin’s ambitions need.

And given father Lawrence Stroll owns the team, we ask if there will come a point where Lance’s future isn’t assured – or if his place in the team is set for good.
