Ferrari official denies Williams F1 switch reports


A Ferrari official has denied rumours he could be about to move to Williams.

Italy’s Corriere della Sera had reported that Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll might be on the verge of buying into the British team.

He would take his son Lance with him to Grove, even though the 16-year-old is currently a part of Ferrari’s driver development ‘academy’.

The Maranello team’s ‘academy’ is headed by Luca Baldisserri, with the report explaining that he too might move to Williams to mentor Stroll.

But Baldisserri, a prominent Ferrari figure of the Schumacher era, told the Ferrari insider Leo Turrini: “Write that I am not going to Williams.

“It’s not that I wasn’t asked, but I don’t want to. I’m 53 and I finished with working at the grands prix almost seven seasons ago,” he insisted. (GMM)

    I think he should use his cash to buy – and hugely improve – the classic old track where the Canadian GP is held. I suppose I’m a blasphemer, but that tacky old Olympic venue they race around might not be missed. Think about that track with a curva grande cantilevered out over the river. And maybe folks should lighten up on his kid. After all he IS in The Ferrari Drivers Academy, eh?

    Lawrence Stroll trying so hard to buy his son a seat in a racing team. Made billions selling crappy jeans. F1 doesn’t need any more pay drivers.
