Lance Stroll from Montreal is eleven. In his short life he has twice won the Canadian national championship in the Rotax Mini Max category and in 2009 he finished sixth in the World finals at Lonato in the Mini Roc category and second in the Rotax Micro Max Florida Winter Tour.
At an age when most boys are battling puberty, homework and the onset of a breaking voice, Stroll was nominated by the Federation Sport Automobile du Quebec as Rookie of the Year in 2008 and Driver of the Year the following year. When I was 11, I was battling to drive a shopping trolley without taking out a shop display.
Luca Baldisserri, who runs the Ferrari Driving Academy said
He is very young, but he has already shown in karting that he is exceptionally talented
His parents are no doubt hoping that his exceptional talent translates into an exceptional income.
