Lance Stroll accomplished his first points finish in the 2022 Emilia Romagna GP. The Canadian finished his highest position finish in the current season with a P10 in Imola. Along with his teammate Sebastian Vettel, who finished P4, the duo opened the books by securing first points for Aston Martin.

Ahead of the weekend, Aston Martin was the only team that failed to score points in the season so far. The Aston Martin AMR22 has struggled in every race so far and has slipped from a midfield team to a backmarker. Even questions were raced in the driver lineup of Vettel and Stroll.

But with the two drivers scoring points this weekend, Lance Stroll says it’s a “positive result” for the team who have had a torrid start to the season so far calling it a “well-earned point”.
