Williams rookie Lance Stroll continued his comprehensive on-track preparation for 2017 last week, running laps at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia with a 2014 Williams FW36.
Stroll comes into Formula 1 as perhaps the best prepared rookie in history, his father having funded a huge test programme – reputed to cost about $80 million – which started last year and has seen the 18-year-old accumulate track time and huge mileage surrounded by a dedicated team supplied by Williams.
