Stroll: I was leading for maybe one lap. Maybe not quite one lap

Lance Stroll believes a mistake late in the German Grand Prix cost him his second F-1 podium.

“I made an error at Turn 8 when it was still quite damp and I was the first one on slicks,” said Stroll.

“I made an error in Turn 8 and that forced me on to the green Astro paint. I think it’s paint on the exit kerb, which allowed Daniil to overtake me.

“Without that, I’d definitely think we would have been on the podium, but it’s easy to say in hindsight if only that wouldn’t have happened, but really happy with P4.”

“I was leading for maybe one lap. Maybe not quite one lap.”

“I heard a message on the radio saying ‘you are leading the race’ so it might have been for a couple of corners and then I think Max [Verstappen] overtook me.”
