Stroll eyes F3 title before Formula 1

Lance Stroll is the latest teenager looking to break into Formula 1.

The son of billionaire fashion mogul Lawrence, the 17-year-old Canadian is a development driver with Williams this year, whilst racing full-time for the top European F3 team Prema.

“Right now I’m really focused on F3,” Lance told La Presse Canadienne this week.

“As I have a little more experience this year, the goal is to win the championship.”

Stroll said his “ultimate goal” is F1, but suggested he knows he must take it step by step towards motor racing’s top category.

“F1 is the ultimate goal,” he said. “As for next year, we will see in due course. I am still very young.

“The most important thing is to do things well. When I am ready and the opportunity presents itself, I will seize it.”

Stroll switched to Williams this year from Ferrari’s driver development ‘academy’, taking with him the highly experienced Ferrari engineer Luca Baldisserri as advisor.

“In the past, Williams has shown trust in young drivers,” he said. “Just think of Jenson Button, Jacques Villeneuve and Nico Rosberg to name a few.”
