Stroll to test for Force India for the first time

Force India have confirmed that Lance Stroll will test for the team for the first time since it was speculated he would be making the move from Williams after his father, Lawrence, bailed out the UK-based outfit with a takeover during the summer.

The grid for the 2019 Formula 1 season is looking significantly different to the current line-up, with the majority of teams having at least one driver change.

Force India are one of these teams, and their new driver is set to be Stroll, who will join his father's new squad.

The move from Stroll has came without too much fanfare, as this is the first occasion that Force India have mentioned the young Canadian driver their car, which he will do in testing next week after the final race of the campaign in Abu Dhabi.

Other major driver changes include Daniel Ricciardo joining Renault, Charles Leclerc and Pierre Gasly being promoted to Ferrari and Red Bull respectively, Kimi Raikkonen returning to Sauber, and Fernando Alonso leaving the sport altogether.

The testing at the Yas Marina circuit for Pirelli will come just days after it was announced that the Italian manufacturer had extended their deal as the sport's sole tyre provider through 2023.
