I’m over the moon with Baku podium – Stroll

The biggest surprise of this weekend, that belonged to Lance Stroll who had made a clean race weekend that gifted in a third placed finish for the Williams F1 rookie

The Canadian F1 youngster was running as high as second at the start of the final lap but lost out to the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.

It was, however, still a first podium for the 18-year-old who became the youngest rookie to race to a top-three showing.

Stroll describes his third place finish as a dream come true.

“It was such a hectic race and I kept my head cool, the team kept me cool over the radio and we took it to the end.

“It was a bit disappointing at the end to lose P2 but all in all an amazing race.

“I started to feel the rear going away so I knew it was going to be tricky to keep the pace. It’s tricky with the tyres to get good lap time and save them. there was a bit of everything going on Valtteri was a bit quicker than me. I’m over the moon with P3.

“You dream of being on an F1 podium, you work towards that and it finally comes true.”
