Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack continues to defend his driver Lance Stroll, saying the team needs to improve its performance as a whole rather than blaming Stroll for his performances in recent races. Stroll has faced criticism in recent weeks due to his poor performances compared to teammate Fernando Alonso.
While Alonso has racked up 170 points in the current Formula 1 season so far, the Canadian has only managed 47. If Stroll had scored the same number of points, or at least been closer to ‘Alonso, Aston Martin would be far ahead in the constructors’ standings. However, Krack believes that the difference in performance is not necessarily related to Stroll’s speed.
Krack said: “There’s not a big difference in pace between them. » He argued that the team needs to improve in several aspects, including strategy and reliability. He noted that technical issues hampered Stroll’s performances in several races, specifically citing the Dutch GP at Zandvoort, where Stroll performed well but was hampered by strategic choices.
These statements from Krack suggest that Aston Martin is committed to supporting Stroll, obviously due to the fact that the driver is the son of team owner Lawrence Stroll, and this guarantees the Canadian’s permanence in the team, despite certain Recent rumors have Stroll thinking about retiring from F1 and seeking a professional career in tennis.
