Lawrence Stroll's Next Target? Buy F1

Feb 06, 08:50 PM

Lawrence Stroll, F1's most-savvy investor - could buying the sport be his next move? Fernando Alonso's oh-so-late clarifications, a Lewis Hamilton Grand Stand and is F1 skipping an entire generation of drivers as it obsesses with the younger ones?

Lawrence Stroll's continued investments in Formula 1. First, a full season of testing for Lance at Williams. Second, a racing seat for Lance at Williams. Third, he bought Force India (now Racing Point). Fourth, he bought British car manufacturer Aston Martin and got them to commit to Formula 1. Could buying Formula 1 from Liberty Media be Lawrence Stroll's next move?

Btw, he could still make a bid to buy Mercedes, if the team was actually up for sale. Currently, Stroll sr. is the most-savvy investor in the business of the sport. In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss how Formula 1 is a family business for the Strolls!

Also in this episode, we tell you why there's no 'Lewis Hamilton Grand Stand' at any circuit while we already have a Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen and even a Lance Stroll Grand Stand. Are Fernando Alonso's clarifications regarding his jibes at Honda a tad too late? If you're a young racer, there's learning from Alonso - on and off track. Finally, will old guard vs. new blood be the headlines that will define Formula 1's rivalries in the new decade? Tune in!
