Stroll moves to Force India for post-season test

ยฉWRI

Lance Stroll has been all but confirmed as Sergio Perez's team mate at Force India next year, but the Canadian will run with his father's team as next week's post-season test in Abu Dhabi.

It's a logical step for the 20-year-old now former Williams driver who will enjoy a head start on his 2019 programme with the pink outfit.

According to a tweet from Force India published earlier today, Tuesday's schedule should see Perez begin the day before handing duties over to Stroll for the afternoon, while the Canadian is expected to get a full day in the car on Wednesday.

Several drivers will be making premature switches to their 2019 teams next week. Kimi Raikkonen will join Sauber, while Charles Leclerc will cross paths with the Finn when he hooks up with Ferrari.

Daniil Kvyat will return to action with Toro Rosso, Robert Kubica and George Russell will get down to work with Williams, and Carlos Sainz will enjoy an early run with McLaren.
