WATCH: Stroll's start goes from dream to disaster

11 Jun 2018

It's a short run down to Turn 1 at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, but in that time Stroll managed to dive between the bright orange McLarens of Stoffel Vandoorne (to his left) and Fernando Alonso (to his right). A brilliant exit from Turn 2 then lifted the Canadian past Brendon Hartley's Toro Rosso and into P13, before a compromised run through Turn 4 - in which he encountered Romain Grosjean's sluggish Haas - put the New Zealander right back on his tail and searching for a way through. The rest, as we know, is history...
