Optimism at Aston Martin – TVA Sports

Lance Stroll has never enjoyed success in Brazil, but with the sprint race taking place this weekend, he believes Aston Martin will be well-positioned to advance in its battle for sixth place in the Formula 1 constructors’ standings.

After a tough start to the season, green cars have seen an improvement recently, taking sixth place in Singapore and Japan as well as eighth place in the United States. Despite the difficulty of last week’s Mexican Grand Prix, confidence is still high.

Furthermore, conducting a sprint should work in Aston Martin’s favour, as it would have the effect of easing the team’s difficulties in qualifying in anticipation of the start of the main event.

“If we can get the most out of our car this weekend – not least because the fast race gives us two chances to perform – we should be able to score some crucial points,” Stroll said in a statement.

“It is also possible to achieve excesses here, which puts us in a stronger position.”

Alfa Romeo currently has four more points.

little success

From a personal point of view, Stroll did no better than finishing 16th in Sao Paulo. That was in his first season, in 2017 with Williams. Since then, he has taken 18th place once and retired twice.

He is still a big supporter of this race on Brazilian soil.

“Interlagos is a great circuit with a tangible atmosphere and a lot of fluidity,” he said. There’s an old school feel and a lot of very satisfying turns when negotiating the right way.”

Along with teammate Sebastian Vettel, who will compete in the penultimate Grand Prix before retirement, nostalgia could take over. He won there three times and was crowned champion in 2012 after his historic rise from 20th to sixth place.

“I have some great memories in Brazil,” he recalls. It would be great to race one last time at this famous circuit.”
