Lance Stroll will become the second youngest driver to compete in Formula One. Stroll, who is just eighteen years old is expected to follow Max Verstappen's footstep. The Canadian driver is 2016 Formula 3 European Championship winner.
Claire Williams is confident that the mixture of experience and rookie driver will make an interesting combination. Williams Martini Racing will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary in Formula One during 2017.
