“When we signed last year at the beginning of August, Fernando didn’t know the car was going to be as fast as it is now,” reveals the Aston Martin owner.
“He has remained physically and mentally at his best and his motivation levels are higher than ever. He is absolutely determined to win,” says the Canadian magnate.
Lawrence Stroll, A successful businessman and with a bank account that has allowed him to put together a Formula 1 team and place it, for the moment, as the second best in the world championship after the powerful Red Bull, he believes that a large part of the merit is due to Fernando Alonso. The Canadian magnate is absolutely dazzled by the Asturian pilot, whom he convinced last summer to join his project and resign from Alpine, when the French team was fourth and those from Silvertone, seventh in the 2022 World Cup.
Stroll assures that the arrival of Alonso has meant a before and after for Aston Martinsince he has radically changed the way the team works and has managed to spread his winning mentality to all the staff, both in the box and in the factory.
“When I spoke to him, Fernando said: ‘Listen, I can bring something to this team in my later years. I’m going to drive and hopefully have some kind of role within Aston Martin for many years when I stop.’ When he said that, I didn’t need much more to convince him”, explained LLawrence Stroll in statements to the ‘New York Times’.
About to turn 42 (July 29) Alonso is going through a kind of second youth and remains at his best level as a driver: “He has remained physically and mentally at his best and his motivation levels are higher than ever. He is absolutely determined to win. The guy is just a big ball of motivation. He is constantly telling everyone on the team: ‘Come on, we’re going to win,’” he explains. Stroll.
