Lance Stroll’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements
Canadian driver Lance Stroll made his debut in 2017 for the Williams team. Initially, he was supposed to replace a retiring Felipe Massa. However, when Nico Rosberg announced his shock retirement, Valtteri Bottas was drafted in. As a result, Massa had to come back out of retirement and race again.
In 2018, Massa retired from F1 for good and Sergey Sirotkin took his place. Stroll had to act as the de facto team leader for his rookie teammate. It didn’t help matters that the Williams was a shadow of its former self. To make matters worse, many labelled him as a pay driver.
Now, for 2019, he will be joining the Racing Point team alongside Sergio Perez. The pay driver claims only intensified when his billionaire father bought the team from the brink of dissolution.
Prior to F1, he was racing in Formula 3 in 2015, losing to champion Felix Rosenqvist and fellow F1 drivers Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles LeClerc. He finished 5th in the championship, racking up five podiums and a win. A year later, he went on to win the Formula 3 title, on the back of 14 wins and six podiums. He defeated Maximilian Gunther and George Russell to the title.
In his debut year in Formula One, he had a bad run initially with three retirements and three non-points finishes. Things changed in his home race in Canada with a maiden point-scoring finish of ninth. Then he stunned everyone and silenced many critics by landing on the podium in Baku, Azerbaijan. He finished the season in 12th after five more point-scoring finishes.
Sadly, 2018 was a terrible year for Williams and the Canadian. He could only muster two point-scoring finishes in Azerbaijan and Italy. Stroll ended the season in 18th. But hopefully for him, a move to Racing Point should alter his fortune.
