Aston Martin confirms Lance Stroll staying until at least 2026

Aston Martin has announced Lance Stroll will remain with the team until at least the 2026 season, with a contract extension that takes him into the new Formula 1 regulations.

Stroll joined the team in 2019 when it was known as Racing Point and has scored two podiums in 112 starts since, adding to the podium he scored in his debut season for Williams back in 2017. Despite now being in his eighth season, Stroll is still just 25 years old and has now been confirmed alongside Fernando Alonso for at least the next two seasons.

“I’m super happy to have committed to staying with the team for 2025 and beyond,” Stroll said. “It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come in the last five years; we’ve grown so much as a team and there’s still so much more to look forward to.”


Confirmation of Stroll’s stay at Aston Martin was deemed a formality given the involvement of his father Lawrence in the team’s ownership. However, team principal Mike Krack says the Canadian’s influence on the team’s development should not be overlooked, despite Stroll having been unable to match Alonso in terms of points return so far in their time as teammates — currently with 17 points to Alonso’s 41 this year.

“We are delighted to confirm Lance’s future with Aston Martin Aramco,” Krack said. “He has played a key role in building this team. His technical feedback, alongside his committed simulator work, has helped contribute to the continuous development of the car each season.

“The consistency and stability of both Lance and Fernando remaining with our team is a great platform to continue to realize our ambitions. We look forward to creating some more incredible memories and achieving further success together.”
