While Aston Martin’s Fernando Alsonso has been having a career renaissance, having achieved 7 podiums so far this season, it hasn’t been the case for his teammate Lance Stroll.

The 24-year-old has not visited the rostrum yet in 2023. He is also 123 points and six places behind Fernando Alonso in the Drivers’ Championship. The qualifying head-to-head makes for brutal reading, too.

The Canadian finished an extremely disappointing P16 in Monza this past weekend, and he was only a few seconds away from being lapped in the end. This comes after an extremely rough weekend where he did not partake in FP1 to give his seat to Felipe Drugovich, and he was then unable to set a time in FP2 due to a fuel leak issue. His Saturday was even worse when he qualified dead last to start the race.

When Stroll was discussing this weekend, he felt like there was no pace in the Aston Martin, the same car which Alonso drove to P9 after starting P10.

“It was just one of those weekends, no pace. Really really slow all weekend.

“There were some vibrations on the tyres, degradation, usual stuff like on the tyres if they’re graining.”

When asked if there was anything he could’ve personally done more, Stroll said that he could have, without going into details.

“Yeah, I mean probably a few things. But I don’t know we’ll look into what we could have done better.”
