Cape Town – Lance Stroll is hoping to take inspiration from Lewis
Hamilton, not Sebastian Vettel, as he progresses through his Formula 1 career.
Stroll will be the most experienced driver at Williams in
2018, starting his second campaign alongside rookie Sergey Sirotkin.
And the Canadian wants to emulate Hamilton and the way he
applies himself to races when the pressure is on.
“You saw in the title race last year how well Lewis handles
pressure, (Sebastian) Vettel folded, but Lewis was able to handle that
expectation,” Stroll said via the Daily Express.
“His car wasn’t always easy to drive. Mercedes
struggled at a few races.
“But he still managed to get the most out of it and score
points when he had to. He was consistent throughout the whole year. He really
was on it, he was determined to score points every weekend.
“Hats off to him, he completely deserves the success he has
had. He is extremely talented and I hope I can have half the success he’s had
in my career.”
Hamilton and Vettel are both tied on four World
Championships apiece and are set to do battle once again in 2018.
