I'm not convinced his consortium bought FI just as a toy for Lance to play with. Well I sincerely hope not anyway. F1 is becoming too big a joke as it is without this happening.


Yeah. If they're serious businessmen (going by their past records, they've become successful through their ventures), they'd not put Lance in 1 of the seats. What's the point of investing good when 1 driver won't deliver a good output. Infact, if they stick with Checo & Ocon, I see the team being best of the rest atleast as I'm expecting a good funding to this team from the consortium's pockets!

It's hard to get a handle on how good or bad stroll is.

After next season, we shall know.

Yeah but at the expense of Ocon or Checo? Unless, either get a good drive somewhere else then it's ok to see Stroll in 1 pf the seats!

The reality is there are only 20 seats available in formula 1, and at the end of the day, it's a numbers game.

Lets put it this way, there was a chance that FI folded and went the way of Manor, and two more drivers would be out of a F1 job, along with 400 staff.

I'm interested in what the rest of Stroll's investment group think about the conflict of interest. I'm sure they're aware that the business they've just invested in will have a pivotally placed employee who can effectively never be fired (Stroll jr), I wonder if that conversation has been had.

Still we aren't aware of the details of the consortium & their goals & investments into the team. Hopefully Stroll Jr. isn't one of their BIG goals.

Do you really think there's any chance Lawrence Stroll will continue to pay Williams the tens of millions they want to allow Lance to drive for them when he can now get him a seat maybe for free?

The money he saves on buying Lance a seat at Williams will help him recover his investment costs at FI.

They are all close buddies of the Strolls. It is really all about the career of Stroll Jr, all else is illusion.

Could be. Maybe the others will use F1 as a marketing tool for their respective brands.

Stroll is actually not that bad, and while he had some bad races he is a superstar compared to Sirotkin.


Remembering Sirotkin is a rookie they're pretty similar.

Idk but that seems like Ecclestone making himself sound like he had some involvement but I’m not so sure he had anything at all to do with anything here.
