F1 TRACKS: Listen to Lance Stroll's takeover playlist
The first ever F1 Tracks driver takeover is here, with Racing Point's Lance Stroll having curated a playlist of his favourite tunes.
The Canadian is set for his second season with Racing Point in 2020 after finishing the 2019 season with a best position of P4 at the spectacular German Grand Prix to add to his podium in Azerbaijan in his rookie season.
He's pulled together some of his top tracks with a varied playlist for fans, including three songs by Red Hot Chili Peppers and three from the Rolling Stones, who prove to be his favourite artists.
The playlist also features some classic hits, including Guns N' Roses' Knockin’ on Heavens Door and Weezer's Island In The Sun. Also featured is the brand new song from Weezer, Hero, from the band’s forthcoming album Van Weezer.
