Lowe: Stroll facing ‘big challenge’


Williams technical boss Paddy Lowe has said Lance Stroll is making "steady progress" but is facing a "big challenge" adjusting to Formula 1.

The Canadian rookie has not finished in any of the three races so far this season and has completed fewer laps than any other driver on the grid.

“It’s particularly annoying for him, but I guess that’s welcome to F1!” Lowe told Motorsport.com. “He’s making steady progress, but it’s a big challenge.

"What’s clear is that there’s an awful lot to learn in this sport, particularly around tyres. He’ll have learned a lot from this weekend, and he’ll come back stronger next time.”
