View from the Pit Lane: Testing
By C4F1 technical analyst, Karun Chandhok
I have got the interesting part about Lance Stroll:
From what I’ve seen Williams, who have Felipe Massa out of his very brief retirement to partner rookie Lance Stroll, head the midfield battle.
I was pleasant surprised by what I saw of the teenager in the final stages of testing. He’s quite an inexperienced rookie, having not done GP2, and had a tough first week in testing with a couple of incidents.
The Canadian looked like he’s settled into a good flow at this test and I came away from watching trackside with a pretty good impression. He’s a fit young guy and on his quali run on the ultra softs tyres he made a mistake so there is more lap time there too.
Where it will be tricky for him is going to circuits that he doesn’t know like Melbourne and Shanghai but on the whole I was quite impressed with what I saw.
