Lance Stroll looks set to continue with Aston Martin in 2025, with Canadian having shared his desire to stay for the ongoing project at the Silverstone-based team.

F1 team principal Mike Krack has also confirmed to media that Stroll has let his intentions be known internally.

With 25-year-old's father, Lawrence, owning the team, the three-time podium finisher is on a rolling contract.

However, his performances have long been criticised externally, with fans - and sometimes pundits - contending that he is not deserving of his seat, with his standing in the team offering no scrutiny or accountability for his results.

Since the start of the 2023 season, he has been comprehensively beaten by team-mate Fernando Alonso, who staying with Aston Martin until at least the end of 2026.

The general consensus is that with Stroll comprising half the driver line-up, the team will struggle to reach its full potential.

Last year, Alonso scored 206 points to Stroll's 74. The Canadian driver was recovering from a serious pre-season injury, but the division of points meant Aston Martin had one of the most unequal line-ups on the grid, something that has continued this term.

At the Monaco Grand Prix, Stroll made persuasive comments about keeping his seat, something that he has not done in the past, which have been followed up with his and Krack's recent remarks.
