Montreal driver Lance Stroll is joining the Force India Formula 1 team.

The team was purchased by Stroll’s father, Lawrence, this past summer, creating instant speculation that Lance would drive for Force India in 2019.

The 20-year-old Lance Stroll drove for Williams in his first two seasons in F1, notching one podium finish when he came third at the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
