Stroll legal threat to end with bloody nose

Billionaire Lawrence Stroll is probably the driving force behind Aston Martin’s current legal threats against Formula 1 authorities, according to Ralf Schumacher. The team has insinuated that Liberty Media, the FIA and even Pirelli conspired to make key changes in order to slow Mercedes down – with Aston Martin described as “collateral damage” by Toto Wolff. “Any change suits someone more, someone less,” he said. Obviously we don’t want to hurt any teams, we only adjusted to the changes affecting all of them and, in my opinion, we chose the most reasonable solution,” the Italian said. As for Aston Martin, Ralf Schumacher joined those who are critical of the team’s complaint. Schumacher suspects it is not team boss Otmar Szafnauer who is driving the legal threat, but rather Aston Martin team owner Lawrence Stroll. Schumacher also suspects that Stroll is angry that the Silverstone based team was penalised last year for the ‘pink Mercedes’ car copying affair.
