It was always just a matter of time, and end it took a while but the cat is now out the bag and Lance Stroll will be a Force India driver this week when he does duty for the team his father Lawrence rescued with his Racing Point consortium.
The tale is old and well told, the Stroll’s finding no joy at Williams have bought a Force India so Stroll can race within a more competitive environment… hopefully!
The announcement was expected but never came, but instead a subtle Tweet after the bu Dhabi Grand Prix revealed:
Day 1 – AM: Sergio
Day 1 – PM: Lance
Day 2 – Lance

Stroll will spend a day and a half with his new toys in a hope to put behind him the nightmare second season he endured with Williams.
The 20-year old Canadian will partner Mexican driver Sergio Perez who has been with the team since 2014.
