F1: Lance Stroll to start 12th in Austria

Quebecer Lance Stroll will start in 12th place on Sunday, following the qualifying sprint race held on Saturday in Austria.

Stroll, who finished the day’s race in 13th place, took advantage of the fact that Valtteri Bottas (Alfa Romeo) was relegated to the back of the grid for an engine change.

Alex Albon (Williams) was also penalized, he who committed a fault against Sebastian Vettel, Stroll’s teammate at Aston Martin. Having had to make a pit stop to complete the 23 laps of the event, Vettel took 19th position, but will start 18th.

It was the Dutchman Max Verstappen, driving his Red Bull, who won, which guarantees him the leading position at the start of the Grand Prix on Sunday.

Ferrari teammates Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz finished second and third, respectively.
