    Latifi came into the sport with a whole lot less fanfare. In fact he came in very quietly. The noise made by Strolls' camp was something was wasn't being backed up, at all.

    See it a lot like when BAR entered the sport (funnily enough another Canadian involved in that one, but unrelated), they made a lot of noise about podiums, wins and whatnot. They finished last in the standings and where absolutely butchered by the press.

    People don't like it when someone trumps themselves up and they can't back it up.

    Sure, Stroll didn't make the noise himself (at least, I don't think), nor was that the case with BAR (it was more because Reynard, who made the chassis, said that they always won in any series with their new chassis so why should F1 be any different), but butchered, all the same.

    Canada has only had 4 drivers that have done anything approaching a season and have had a number of drivers to do call it 10 races or less.

    In the earlier camp is Gilles Villeneuve, Jacques Villeneuve, Lance Stroll, and Nicholas Latifi.

    Drivers with 5 races or less include (from the top of my head so I will miss some):

    - Al Paese (an easy one to remember because he is the only driver ever to be excluded from an F1 race for being too slow)
    - Eppie Wietzes (would later own a Toyota dealership in Toronto)
    - George Eaton (probably just over 10 races with BRM) Owner of a prominent department store in Canada. His son raced in Europe in the early 2000's with no real success
    - Allen Berg (I believe he did close to 10 races with Osella in 1986)
    - Bill Brack
    - Peter Ryan
    - John Cordts
    - John Cannon

    No real results for any other the latter list.

    Did notice during the Monza race. Vettel started in front but Stroll finished way in front.
    Seems like a nice performance by Stroll.

    But now I see the footage what happened. Stroll passes Vettel by cutting the corner and next pushes him very wide so Vettel looses another two places ruining his race.

    And AM? They congratulate Stroll with the points…

    Is the pit confirm button the OK button, or are there two different buttons? Who was right?

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    I'm surprised that Lawrence lets him keep it? He needs to dump it and get a new Aston Gizmo.

    You beat me to it. I was going to say He may want a Ferrari but he'll have to settle for an Aston. Of course . . . that's not too shabby either.

    Yeah this thread is like the Energizer Bunny - It keeps going and going and . . . . .

    Stroll sold off most of his Ferrari collection, not sure about the dealership.

    Stroll and Vettel confirmed for next year, no surprise there. Groundbreaking for new Aston Martin facility, so maybe some day it pays off for Stroll senior.

    Vettel who won for Minardi at Monza in the rain. WTF!

    Yes, Stroll is pretty good in mixed conditions as we also saw with his pole in Turkey.

    agreed

    And on a brighter note: Stroll beat Vettel again today. Sadly the team brought him in way too early for tire change, oh well.
