Although their performance has dropped off somewhat and they have been caught and passed by the likes of Mercedes, Ferrari and, seemingly inevitably, McLaren, Alonso is still producing some incredible performances.
That is backed up by the fact that, prior to Friday, he was the only driver to feature in every Q3 session so far in 2023.
Despite his age, Stroll believes there could still be more to come from the Spaniard, whose current contract expires at the end of 2024.
“He is full of energy, as if he were 22 years old," he told Sky Sports.
"He is very committed, extremely motivated, obviously extremely talented and a fantastic brand ambassador.
"He is fantastic as a Formula 1 driver, I would say on and off the track he is a fantastic ambassador for Aston Martin.
When asked about whether Alonso might extend his contract, Stroll said: “Anything is possible. At this moment he has a contract to drive with us next year and we are looking forward to it.”
