“Lance Stroll won the Italian F4 Championship, the European Formula 3 Championship, finished twice on a Formula 1 podium and qualified in the front row at the Italian Grand Prix in 2017 in tough conditions. In summary I don’t think that We can say that Stroll only drives in Formula 1 because his father happens to be a billionaire, “said Toto Wolff’s clear words to, among others, RacingNews365 when confronted with the influx of rich kids into the sport.
The team boss would like to reverse the statement about Stroll’s rich father: “Lance can’t help it that his father is rich. That’s why I think it’s all the more clever that when you grew up in such a climate, you still want to do everything to be successful in a competitive sports world. In my opinion there is no discussion at all about Lance’s position in Formula 1. “
Wolff also likes to stand up for the other so-called ‘paydrivers’ who are sons of rich fathers: “Nicholas Latifi has not been able to show much this year, but it is his first year in Formula 1. Before that he was successful in the Formula 1. Formula 2. Nikita Mazepin will be the same in the future. He has also shown that he is competitive for several years. We are not talking about guys who just end up in Formula 1 without having shown anything in Formula 1. other race classes. “
“Five or six years ago there were a lot more drivers in F1 who just got into the premier class of motorsport because of their budget. I think that’s not the case now, we are talking about competitive drivers,” said Wolff , which does not want to name names of so-called ‘pay drivers’ from the past.
Mazepin appears to be the successor of Romain Grosjean at Haas and the Austrian can understand that choice: “Guenther Steiner has tried with the same rider for a number of years at Haas and now he gives the chance to a new talent. The new talent has proven to be competitive. and also brings money, so that seems to me to make Steiner a logical choice. I would have done that, even though I have nothing against Grosjean. He has had a good number of good years in Formula 1. “
