  • Stroll is one of the youngest drivers on the grid
  • His father owns the Racing Point F1 team.
  • His performances in the last few races haven't been impressive

In the last couple of races Racing Point's Lance Stroll has been having quite a torrid time. Imola was no different. After he failed to qualify for Q2 he spent most of the race at the back end of the grid and even managed to crash his car into one of the mechanics at the pitstop. But this wasn't the only incident the young Canadian was involved in as he could've been involved in a more serious accident at the fag end of the race when Stroll was seen zipping at top speed when the marshalls were out cleaning debris from the track with the safety car was out.

In Stroll's defence, this happened when the safety car was about to come back inside and the backmarkers were allowed to catch up to the lead pack at a higher speed. Stroll didn't know the Marshalls were still trackside cleaning up the wreckage from Max Verstappen's Red Bull which has crashed out of the race triggering the safety car. Onboard footage from Stroll's Racing Point shows how close the Canadian came to crashing into one of the marshalls who were still at work and possibly even crossing the track. Luckily nothing happened.
