4: Lawrence Stroll's Next Target? Buy F1

4: Lawrence Stroll's Next Target? Buy F1


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 (http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b) , 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!
(Season 2020, Episode 04)

9:00-12:00 – Lawrence Stroll’s continued investments in Formula 1. First, a seat at Williams. Second, a racing team. Third, a car manufacturer. Could Lawrence’s next target be buying Formula 1 itself?
12:00 – 15:00 – Old guard vs. new blood – could Formula 1 skip an entire generation of drivers as it rushes to sign younger ones? Sorry, Ricciardo and Perez!
15:00-18:00 – Are Fernando Alonso’s clarifications about his jibes at Honda a little too late? For all young racers out there, Alonso is a great example to learn from, on and off track
