Jenson Button’s comments on Lance Stroll’s F1 future could have major implications
Jenson Button, the 2009 Formula 1 World Champion, has drawn attention to an uncomfortable fact regarding Lance Stroll’s performance in the 2023 F1 season. Stroll, currently in his fifth season in Formula 1, has amassed 37 points from the first eight races, placing him in eighth position in the Drivers’ Championship. While this is Stroll’s highest-ever position in the championship, it pales in comparison to the remarkable achievements of his Aston Martin teammate, Fernando Alonso.
Alonso has secured an impressive six podium finishes in eight races, including two second-place finishes, a fourth-place, and a seventh-place. As a result, he has accumulated 117 points, triple the tally of Stroll. Alonso currently sits in third place in the Drivers’ Championship, a mere nine points behind Sergio Perez. Aston Martin currently occupies the third position in the Constructors’ Championship, but if Stroll were scoring as strongly as Alonso, the team would comfortably secure second place.
