A shock pole for Canadian rain man Lance Stroll

For all the criticism lobbed at Lance Stroll during his F1 career, the young Canadian's remarkable performance achieved on this day in 2020 in Turkey with Racing Point showed the haters that he was one gifted driver.

On a rainy day in Istanbul and on a treacherous track amid changing conditions, Stroll embraced the opportunity to master the elements.

And he did it like a seasoned veteran, topping the final Q3 shootout by 0.290s from Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Stroll's accomplishment was also the first time a Canadian driver had come out on top in qualifying in 23 years, since Jacques Villeneuve in the 1997 European GP.
