Stroll Sr. put up the money and bought the team and perez got paid . As much as some of you don't like Stroll Jr. he's going to be one of the drivers on Racing Point next year. Being a dad and now a granddad i spent my money trying to further my son and grandkids racing careers and never looked at it as being a negative. Stroll Sr is doing the same at a much higher level and i admire him for it. Racing is just a game (the only one for me) and i admire any driver who can get to that level. Hope you all have a good day because it's getting harder to find those good days.
I don’t understand the hate to the Stroll’s either... I don’t think Lance is a great driver, but by no means is he one o the worst, he is actually holding his own against Perez, who is well regarded and with a lot more potential in the future since he has a higher ceiling for development.
Also, paid drivers have always been a part of F1, yes Stroll Sr. Buying a team may make Stroll Jr the driver that has paid the most for a seat, but he is probably better than any other pay driver that has been in the sport.
I don’t have much sympathy for Perez either, who in itself is a type of pay driver also with the sponsorship money he brings to the teams he races for.
