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.
