Formula 1 star Lance Stroll appears to shove trainer before sweary six-word interview

Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll was seen appearing to shove a team member in frustration after yet another early qualifying exit.

The Canadian will start in 17th for Sunday’s Qatar Grand Prix after a poor evening around the Lusail International Circuit.

Things were made far worse when he exited his AMR23 and looked up at the timing screens, with teammate Fernando Alonso finishing Q1 in third, 14 places higher.

Heading back to his room in the paddock, Stroll was filmed walking off with his personal trainer, and then appeared to angrily shove him out of the way.

Clearly yet to simmer down after the event, he was asked how he felt on TV and said: “Yeah s***.”

Then when asked what wasn’t working he said: “I dunno,” before replying: “keep driving,” to a question about the rest of the weekend.

Alonso domination very much been the tale of the tape for the two Aston Martin drivers this season, with Stroll having a year from hell against his two-time world champion teammate.

It’s been just short of a white wash for Alonso, beating Stroll in 14 out of 16 races, and now 15 out of 17 qualifying sessions.

As an extra painful reminder, Alonso is currently fourth in the world championship with four podiums to his name, while Stroll is 10th with a best finish of fourth.

Despite the pressure seemingly getting to the driver of the no.18 car, his race seat is under little threat.

Currently on a rolling contract, his father, Lawrence owns the Aston Martin team.

Stroll is widely reported to have complete control over his future in F1, but rumours have suggested he may well be getting fed up.

At the Dutch Grand Prix in August, rumours from reputable sources in the paddock said he could step away from F1 in favour of tennis.

Responding to the story, Stroll said:  “I don’t know, it was like Crofty or something that came up with that? 

“He was having a few beers on the coach, thinking about my tennis game I don’t know, better ask him.

“That was an odd one, I don’t know where he came up with that one, very creative, but I haven’t really thought about it, picking up tennis.”

Elsewhere in qualifying, Max Verstappen took pole position for Sunday’s race, and looks set to seal his third title in Saturday’s sprint.

The Dutchman only needs to take three points over teammate Sergio Perez, who is looking well off of the pace down in 13th.
