Following on from his accident in Qualifying yesterday, Lance Stroll and Aston Martin have now agreed that the driver will not race in the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix, on Sunday.
The accident happened in Q1, with the driver pushing to get through to Q2 – suffering a snap of oversteer after running over the kerbs and hitting the barriers.
Whilst saying that he was OK, Stroll got out of the car and was taken to the medical team who passed him as being “fit”.
Since then, the team have said that Stroll is now feeling the “after-effects” of the crash and is still “sore” so they have decided that it will be better for him to focus on recovering, in time for the next race.
The next race is the 2023 Japanese Grand Prix, at Suzuka – a great track that we’re all looking forward to!
Team Principal, Mike Krack said: “The whole team are relieved that Lance was able to step out of the car after yesterday’s accident.”
“However, he is still feeling the after-effects of such a high impact crash.”
“Our priority now is that he makes a full and speedy recovery.”
“Together, we have decided that he will sit out this evening’s race and instead focus fully on returning to the cockpit for the next weekend race, the Japanese Grand Prix.”
