Jordan: Lawrence Stroll the greatest instrument in F1

Former F1 team boss Eddie Jordan has heaped praise on Lawrence Stroll, calling him "the smartest instrument in F1" ahead of Aston Martin's eagerly awaited debut.

Eddie Jordan, founder of the Jordan Grand Prix team, believes Lawrence Stroll has been a revelation in Formula 1 for the job he has done in the short space of time he’s been in control of his old team.

The team has had a number of iterations since the Irishman was forced to sell in 2005, and after hitting financial trouble towards the end of the Force India era, Canadian billionaire Stroll stepped in to pick up the pieces. Now Aston Martin after a two-season stint as Racing Point, Jordan is more confident than ever about the future of the Silverstone-based outfit.

"Never rule out the father, Lawrence Stroll," Jordan told The Race. "He has that Midas touch, everything he does turns to gold. He is the smartest instrument in Formula 1 at the moment, without any question.

"The team is in the very best of hands."

The arrival of COVID-19 delayed plans to unveil a new factory so Aston Martin will remain in the original facilities from the Jordan era for a little longer, and that’s not all that’s carried over, with a number of familiar faces still representing the team.

"Andy Green is there, people like Andy Stevenson - he came to me in 1984 or ’85, and his story is ridiculous," Jordan continued. "I gave him a rubbish job on Johnny Herbert’s car and then a better job on [Jean] Alesi’s car.

"Then he went up on [Michael] Schumacher’s car and he stayed there, he’s never moved and is now sporting director of the team. That’s the kind of thing I love. I love loyalty."

Although Stroll’s involvement in F1 has only been visible since his son Lance debuted for Williams in 2017, Jordan says the Canadian has long held an interest in the sport, with their relationship stretching back decades. And the 72-year-old believes Lawrence and the entire team deserve huge credit for the job they've done in recent years.

"I’ve known Lawrence a long time," he added. "I remember finishing fourth and fifth in our very early days and Lawrence was one of the first people around to congratulate us. I remember being in his house for dinner on occasions in ’91, ’92, so he’s been a fan for a long time.

"He has been a revelation, he’s one of the greatest entrepreneurial minds that you could get. Everything he does turns to gold, whether it’s Michael Kors, whether it’s Tommy Hilfiger, whether if the fragrance brand, whether it’s a jeans company. Everything that he does.

"And remember he’s come in, and he’s taken over, effectively, a team in administration or bankruptcy, call it what you like, with Force India. And they won a race at the end of last year. Who’d have ever thought that that could have happened? You have to give them absolutely massive credit."
