Lance Stroll described the Brazilian Grand Prix as “a long, hard race” after finishing a lowly eighteenth at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace.
The Williams Martini Racing driver started on the back row of the grid and despite a good start, slipped back and admitted that the car was just “too slow”.
“It was a long, hard race. I had a good start and then I was just getting out of the way for blue flags and managing tyres, but ultimately that wasn’t good enough as we were too slow.”
Brazil is one of the shortest tracks on the Formula 1 calendar and Stroll admitted it was a tough to get out the way of the leaders so it wasn’t a very exciting race for him.
“That is the nature of the track also, as it is very tight and there are not many corners, so it is tough to get out of the way.
“It was far from the most exciting race.”
The Canadian believes the Williams was just simply not “quick enough” and there was nothing the team could do with strategy to improve from last place.
“The bottom line is we were not quick enough, and I am not sure we could have done anything with our strategy.”
