To be honest, I really didn’t see Lance Stroll going anywhere, I mean, after all, his dad owns the team. The bigger question was centered on Sebastian Vettel and if he wanted to continue racing in F1.
It seems that question has been answered as Aston Martin F1 announced their driver lineup for the 2022 season. They will retain Sebastian and Lance for 2022.
It’s a good call because Lance has never faced a radical regulation change in F1 before and Sebastian has so having that experience in team for the 2022 changes will be important.

“Next season I will be embarking on my sixth year in Formula One, alongside my team-mate Sebastian. We started this Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team campaign together and I greatly look forward to continuing the journey with him next year. We have not achieved what we set out to do this year, but that has only amplified our hunger and drive for success next season. Now, with the prestige and support of Aston Martin, and the brilliant new sponsor-partners that such a prestigious brand has attracted, we are well positioned to improve our performance in 2022.”

“I am really looking forward to racing the new generation of Formula One cars. Their look is very different and the new technical regulations should give us cars that can race much more closely than recently. More exciting racing will be great for the drivers as well as for the fans. The changes are so big that every team will be starting from a new beginning, so it will be a great opportunity for us at Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team. I believe in the strength of our new growing team, so I am already looking forward to 2022.”
