In a recent video posted by ‘Desi Racing Co,’ Lance Stroll offered insights into his future with his current team, Aston Martin.

Stroll’s performance in the 2024 season has been a mixed bag. While he secured a solid 10th-place finish at the season-opener in Bahrain and out-qualified and out-raced his teammate Fernando Alonso in Australia, the other weekends haven’t gone as planned. He crashed out early in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and suffered a Q1 exit in Japan, leaving him visibly disappointed. The gap between Stroll and Alonso is the largest between any duo on the grid, with Alonso consistently outperforming him.

Adding to the complexity is Honda’s exclusive partnership with Aston Martin set to begin in 2026. While this move promises exciting prospects for the team, it also introduces a new variable. Stroll’s fate may depend on how well he adapts to the changing dynamics within the team. If he can’t maximize the potential of his car like Alonso, his position could be at risk.

Should Lance Stroll leave, several drivers might view the Aston Martin seat as an attractive opportunity. One such candidate is Carlos Sainz, who will be a free agent in 2025 after Ferrari decided not to renew his contract. However, veteran BBC F1 journalist Andrew Benson suggests that if Sainz were to join Aston Martin, it would likely be in place of Alonso, not Stroll. Other drivers may also be eyeing the seat, making the decision even more critical for Stroll.
