Lance Stroll is now a Formula 1 driver, and there are a lot of people who don't like that. Perception has been that the extraordinary wealth of his father, Tommy Hilfiger tycoon Lawrence Stroll, has allowed him to buy his success.
But while the largesse of Stroll Sr has allowed his son unprecedented resources through the junior ranks of motorsport, the guy in the cockpit has had to deliver the goods. This he has done.
Importantly, Lance Stroll is not a rich dilettante taking up a space in F1 that should by rights go to one of his lesser-funded peers. He has seen off talented opposition to win the Formula 3 European Championship, and he is a bright, personable, hard-working racing driver.
