To make matters worse, their weekend in Austin has gotten off to a poor start, however not due to Stroll’s fault.
In FP1, his Aston Martin AMR23 was only able to complete five laps before having to pit due to overheating front left brake discs. Stroll subsequently finished the session as the slowest of the 20 cars due to his lack of running, and will now be behind the weekend’s run plan compared to the rest of the grid..
With Aston Martin currently engaging in a tight battle against McLaren for fourth place in the constructors' championship, Stroll is going to be needed for the team to score points in the remaining five races. Unfortunately, it seems that once again Alonso may be on his own this weekend.
