Fernando Alonso Backs Lance Stroll to Lead Aston Martin Post-Retirement

Fernando Alonso believes that Lance Stroll will take the helm at Aston Martin once he steps away from Formula 1.

Fernando Alonso thinks that Lance Stroll will take over as the lead driver for Aston Martin once he retires from Formula 1.

Since Alonso began with Aston Martin at the beginning of 2023, he has consistently outperformed his teammate.

As of the 2024 qualifying rounds, the competition is tight with Alonso slightly ahead at 5-4. However, when it comes to the overall standings, the two-time world champion has a significant lead, holding 33 points compared to Stroll's 11 points.

Last year, the disparity was more pronounced, with Alonso securing eight podium finishes, while Stroll's best result was a fourth-place finish at the Australian Grand Prix.

At 42 years old, Alonso holds the title of the most senior driver in the lineup, yet he has signed a fresh agreement with Aston Martin, which is expected to retain him with the team through to the conclusion of 2026.

Upon his retirement, he firmly believes that Stroll will take the helm of the team.

In an interview with The Times, Alonso explained that joining Formula 1 introduces you to an intense level of competitiveness within the team and the sport. He mentioned that it's quite overwhelming, especially since newcomers are often in their twenties and their teammates are usually older and more experienced.

"These days, I feel quite the opposite—I’m now the most senior and experienced member, and with that comes the responsibility of guiding the team. I aim to assist not just the engineers but also Lance. I plan to be involved with the team for many years, even after I retire from driving, and I believe Lance will take the lead in the future. I will always be there to support him."

Alonso’s new Formula 1 contract ensures he will continue competing until the age of 44.

He admitted that, similar to Max Verstappen—who has repeatedly stated that he plans to leave Formula 1 before reaching his mid-30s—he also believed he would exit the sport sooner.

"That's exactly what went through my mind when I was Max's age," Alonso commented. "It's a peculiar situation because we are among the elite, just 20 individuals worldwide driving Formula 1 cars. Naturally, you assume you'll want to continue as long as you're quick and enjoying it, but simultaneously, it deprives you of all the other aspects of life that bring you joy."

"Changes will be made, such as having my family attend more races, to minimize any negative aspects."
