Stroll: You are always going to find jealous people
Big money bought Lance Stroll’s slot on the grid with Williams this year, inevitably the move has been met with substantial negative reactions from the motorsport world which the teenager puts down to jealousy.
Speaking after an unspectacular grand prix debut at the season opening race in Australia, Stroll said, “Obviously people who are not in Formula 1 are trying to find excuses why they are not in Formula 1.”
“I think that the drivers in the paddock have respect of each other. They all know that winning Formula 4, Formula Renault, Formula 3 takes a lot of effort and work to do that.”
“So for sure the drivers in Formula 1 have respect for each other, we know what it takes to arrive here and then obviously the drivers, who are not here, most of the time will find a way to find a reason not to be here.
“So it’s normal. I don’t think I need to spell it for you, but that’s the way it is. Because you are always going to find jealous people and people that don’t like you for the wrong reasons and that’s the way it is,” added 18 year old Stroll.
