Lance Stroll starred in a delicate moment with Fernando Alonso on the first lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix. The Asturian’s new teammate at Aston Martin lost control of his car at turn six, colliding with the two-time world champion. Fortunately, the touch did not go to major allowing the Spaniard to continue with the race.
The worst part for Fernando Alonso was that that blow made him lose speed heading into the next straight being passed by George Russell’s Mercedes. The FIA even opened an investigation to clarify the facts, ruling that it was a racing incident.
It must be remembered that Lance Stroll, son of the owner of the Aston Martin team, he took part in the race physically handicapped by an injury to his right wrist that prevented him from taking part in the preseason. The driver has shown all weekend that he is not at 100% and also on the warm-up lap he went off slightly.
