During the 2024 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka, Lance Stroll expressed his frustration over the straight-line speed of his Aston Martin. He remarked“It’s unbelievable how bad our speed is on the straight, but, like, it’s a different category.” Despite some impressive overtakes in other sections of the track, Stroll found that his car lacked the necessary straight-line pace to pass competitors on the main straight, even with the assistance of the Drag Reduction System (DRS) . The struggle for speed was evident, and Stroll had to make his moves elsewhere, such as in Turn 6.

Interestingly, the speed trap figures from the Japanese Grand Prix race showed only minimal differences between Stroll and his competitors. For instance, at the sector two speed trap (located on the run down to 130R), Stroll’s top speed was registered at 303.4 km/h, while his rival Tsunoda achieved 304.8 km/h.
