A rumor that emerged in the Montreal paddock, before the race on Sunday, suggested that Lance Stroll was offered to Toro Rosso – on loan – by Williams to replace Hartley, upon which the Grove outfit would promote their reserve Robert Kubica to the race seat vacated by the young Canadian.
The rumor goes on to say that Canadian Billionaire Lawrence Stroll, who bankrolls the Williams team, would pay to put his son in another car to prove his ability, something he cannot do in the inferior Paddy Lowe Williams.
While the Toro Rosso is not a front running car, it would give Lance Stroll a measure against the highly rated Pierre Gasly who would be his teammate.
