While most drivers head to Interlagos looking forward to the upcoming Brazilian Grand Prix, Williams Martini Racing‘s Lance Stroll isn’t a fan of the circuit.

On his first visit last year he qualified eighteenth place and finished in sixteenth, two laps down on the eventual winner Sebastian Vettel, gaining positions only as a result of retirements.

“To be honest, there is not a lot I can say about Brazil as it is not my favourite track and it is rather bumpy.” said Stroll.

“I love the enthusiasm of the Brazilians, but last year I had a tough race and didn’t enjoy it. I hope I can turn this round this year and come away with good memories.”

With Stroll yet to confirm his 2019 plans, it is widely expected he will head to Force India in the new year after his father Lawrence Stroll headed a consortium in a takeover earlier this year.

The Canadian will be hoping to go out on a high in the two remaining races having only secured two top-ten positions in Williams worst season since entering Formula 1.
