I too wish he would have started the race, because we could have found out if the Racing Point's lack of pace yesterday was due to the car struggling on long runs or Stroll being back to his old self after a good race in Hungary.
It was the car at fault obviously, Stroll didn't just get better, or neither can you just get worse.
Stroll is doing better because he is in last years Merc....
That is like suggesting that Alonso just suddenly forgot to drive fast when he was at McLaren...
I hate to break it to you...if Lewis was in the Alfa he'd be at the back.....
