“I enjoyed the battle with Alex [Albon] and, after following him for a few laps, I was happy to do the maneuver in Turn 1. It was a sweaty place. “But I liked the new format today. Every time we hit the track, there’s something to fight for. It keeps us on our toes and I think it’s also exciting for the fans,” Stroll admitted.
Aston Martin has been suffering from opening DRS failures since Friday, costing its drivers some precious tenths. Contrary to what happened to Alonso, Lance seemed to no longer have to deal with the faulty device in the short race and celebrated the team’s efficiency in fixing the problem.
“We had some DRS issues in sprint qualifying but luckily it seemed to work for the race which was important as overtaking is a big challenge at this circuit.
