Aston Martin give update on Stroll recovery

The team has issued an update on the condition of Lance Stroll, who missed pre-season testing due to an injury.

Aston Martin has said that it will give Lance Stroll "every chance" to race pending recovery from the injury he sustained that forced him out of pre-season testing. The team confirmed that Felipe Drugovich will be available to drive alongside Fernando Alonso, in the event that Stroll is unable to race. Rumours of a potential return for Sebastian Vettel circulated when the team refused to rule out a comeback for the four-time World Champion . But given the milage covered by Drugovich in the AMR23, it appears the team has elected to side with putting someone with recent experience in the car. Read the full update below.
