Stroll ‘has what it takes’ to fight for title – Rene Rosin

Prema Powerteam Team Manager Rene Rosin believes Lance Stroll has all the ingredients necessary to make a challenge for the 2016 FIA European Formula 3 Championship after the team announced the Canadian teenager would stay with the team next season.

Rosin saw Stroll take his maiden victory at Hockenheim and multiple other podium finishes during the second half of the season to take fifth place in the standings, and feels the Ferrari Driver Academy driver will be a contender for the title in 2016.

“It is an honour to have Lance with us again for the 2016 FIA F.3 European Championship,” revealed Rosin. “He did a superb job this season, cruising to multiple podium finishes and a phenomenal overall win en-route to a stunning 5th place in standings.

“Making his debut in such a demanding series, he was the class of the rookie field and also fought with much more experienced rivals, proving he is ready for the next step.

“I am sure he has all what it takes to deliver more brilliant results and fight for the overall crown.”
