LONDON (Reuters) – Force India completed Formula One’s 2019 driver line-up on Friday with confirmation that 20-year-old Canadian Lance Stroll will race for them next season.
The move had been taken for granted since August, when a consortium led by Stroll’s billionaire father Lawrence took control of the British-based team after they went into administration.
“This is the beginning of an incredibly exciting journey in my Formula One career. I look forward to working alongside a successful team with a great culture,” said Stroll in a statement.
