Canadian billionaire and team Owner Lawrence Stroll has set his Aston Martin Formula 1 team the target to become world champions.

Stroll recently renamed his Racing Point outfit after the historic British car brand.

The team also signed four-time champion Sebastian Vettel for the upcoming 2021 season.

“My aim with this, like the other businesses I’ve owned, is to win,” Stroll told BBC Sport in an interview to mark the official launch of Aston Martin F1.

“F1 is a process that takes years to be successful; it is not an overnight thing, but no business is built overnight.”

“This will be the same. I want to continue where we finished last year, only stronger.”

“We had several podiums, we had a win. I’d like this year to have several more podiums and another win or two – step by step fighting for more and more wins.”

Stroll added that it was also his ambition for his son Lance, who drives for the team, to become a future world champion.

61-year-old Stroll made his fortune in the fashion industry, and he took over what was the Force India racing team in 2018.
