Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Newly-crowned Euro F3 cham­pion Lance Stroll is close to a race deal with Wil­liams F1 for 2017, ac­cord­ing to MN’S sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion Au­tosport. The 17-year-old Cana­dian sealed the F3 ti­tle last week­end at Imola, and is part of the Wil­liams driver devel­op­ment pro­gramme. Stroll al­ready has enough su­per­li­cence points to be el­i­gi­ble for the seat, and turns 18 at the end of October mean­ing he is also old enough. The Geneva-based driver com­mented: “I can’t say yet. In any case, my goal is For­mula 1 and that is what I am work­ing on. I feel that I am ready.”
