Aston Martin’s commitment to Lance Stroll seemingly came into question after an embarrassing error from the United States Grand Prix organisers saw reserve driver Felipe Drugovich included on an F1 poster instead of the Canadian.
24-year-old Stroll has been amongst the F1 grid ever since joining with Williams back in 2017. The Canadian has gone on to compete with Racing Point and currently Aston Martin, where he has spent the last three seasons.
In an ironic twist, the organisers for the upcoming United States Grand Prix in Austin accidentally included Drugovich instead of Stroll on a poster showing the current F1 drivers.
After this was seemingly noticed on social media, the organisers moved to quickly correct this mistake and return Stroll to his spot.
Nevertheless, the initial error led to further questions and speculation over Stroll’s future both in the team and the sport as a whole.
However, as Stroll’s father, Lawrence, is the owner of the Aston Martin F1 team, it seems unlikely that this would happen. Stroll currently sits tenth in the championship, but remains 136 points behind Alonso who is fourth.
