Lance Stroll and Aston Martin F1 confirm multi-year contract extension

Aston Martin made it official on Thursday.

In an announcement ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix the team made it clear: Lance Stroll was not going anywhere. While there was every expectation that Stroll would be back for 2025, and the driver himself hinted at a new deal recently, the announcement came Thursday that Stroll would be back for 2025 “and beyond” on a new multi-year extension.

The news means Aston Martin’s lineup for 2025 will be unchanged, given the previous announcement of an extension for Fernando Alonso.

“I’m super happy to have committed to staying with the team for 2025 and beyond,” said Stroll in the announcement. “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.”

“We are delighted to confirm Lance’s future with Aston Martin Aramco. 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,” added Team Principal Mike Krack.

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

The news comes as Aston Martin is looking to improve their form following a slow start to the 2024 Formula 1 season. While they were the darlings of the paddock as the year began in 2023, providing an early threat to Red Bull, Aston Martin is currently fifth in the Constructors’ Championship standings, 93 points adrift of fourth-place Mercedes.

Fifth is where they finished last season, after their promising start.
