After fighting in the last positions throughout the race this Sunday (28), Spear Stroll abandoned on Monaco GP on lap 53 after a streak of messing and hitting the wall. According to the Canadian, the first round had already left its mark on the Aston Martinbut it was still possible to look for positions while the track was dry.
“Honestly, it wasn’t a race to remember,” Stroll admitted. “The first lap was quite busy – lots of crashes, lots of carbon fibers flying everywhere. Those hits caused quite a bit of damage to the car, but I still managed to find space with a few cars ahead” , he explained.
According to Stroll, the AMR23 had braking problems and made it even more difficult to drive on a very demanding track, and the onset of rain increased the adversity considerably. In the end, Lance found the wall and had to return to the pits.
“I was able to do some overtaking, which was fun,” he said. “But I had a bit of trouble slowing the car down, even before the rain. Then, when it started to rain, the brake problems prevented me from stopping the car,” he said.
“I think I hit the wall five times, it just wasn’t my day,” he lamented. “Congratulations to Fernando [Alonso] for an excellent result. I’ll be aiming for points in Barcelona next weekend – I’m already looking forward to the Spain“, he concluded.
