Lance Stroll will drive Williams F1 for 2017

Lance Stroll has signed a contract to make his F1 debut for Williams in 2017.

That is the clear claim of the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat, adding that the probability that the teenage Canadian’s teammate will be Valtteri Bottas is “high”.

The report said Stroll, the European F3 leader whose father is the fashion mogul Lawrence Stroll, is bringing no less than $35 million a year to the Grove team.

Meanwhile, Speed Week reports that Williams is hoping its signing of Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso’s former Ferrari engineer Antonio Spagnolo will help in the crucial area of tyre performance.

“We have not had many people in the area of tyres,” said Bottas, “but now we have someone only concentrating on tyres.

“It helps now but it will help even more in the future,” he added.
