Lance Stroll is the son of billionaire Lawerence Stroll. The 23-year-old arrived on the F1 circuit when his father bought Force India from Vijay Mallya.
Several F1 fans doubted Stroll’s ability as they believed he only got in due to his father. However, Stroll has indeed shown his ability, and in his relatively short career, he has already managed to get three podium finishes. Going into the 2022 F1 season, Stroll will look to bolster his accomplishments and make his team proud.
