Team principal Mike Krack admitted he had spoken to the four-time champion since Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll was forced to miss pre-season testing. Krack said “Plan A” was for Stroll to recover in time for next weekend’s race. Krack said: “I have had a couple of phone calls with Sebastian but this has been also [the case] last year and will continue in the future.”.
