Lance Stroll confirms that he will return to the Aston Martin cockpit for the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka after wadding up his car in Singapore.
The Canadian racer has been under mounting pressure to retire and work in his father’s clothing business rather than further embarrass himself in the cockpit.
He crashed so hard in Singapore last weekend and missed the race. The fear was that he rung his bell so bad he would not be ready to race at Suzuka this weekend.
There were rumors that Aston Martin reserve driver Felipe Drugovich would be called up to replace Stroll. He could not replace Stroll last weekend because the car was so badly damaged.
However, Stroll now says that he is ready to race this weekend.
“Thank you for all the kind messages,” he wrote in a post.
“Ready to race this weekend.”
