Villeneuve slams ill Stroll for missing race

1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve has slammed Lance Stroll for sitting out this weekend’s racing at the Nurburgring. Fellow Canadian Stroll did not appear on track for Saturday morning practice, with Racing Point boss Otmar Szafnauer explaining that the 21-year-old “couldn’t get off the toilet”. Stroll, who has been criticised by Villeneuve in the past, is the son of Racing Point owner and billionaire Lawrence Stroll. “If you really want to make it in Formula 1, you don’t just drop out of a race,” Villeneuve said. Szafnauer said Stroll, who was replaced at the eleventh hour by Nico Hulkenberg, has repeatedly tested negative for covid-19.
