Stroll fit to drive in Bahrain GP after wrist injury

Lance Stroll will drive in Formula One’s opening race of the season in Bahrain on Sunday after recovering from a wrist injury, his Aston Martin team said on Thursday.

The 24-year-old Canadian suffered the injury in a bike accident in February and missed pre-season testing in Bahrain as a result.

“It was an unfortunate accident,” Stroll said in a statement.

“I fell from my bike when my tyre caught a hole in the ground.

“But thankfully the damage was not significant and a successful minor surgery on my right wrist fixed the problem very quickly.

“Since then I’ve been working hard with my team to ensure that I am fully fit to compete this weekend.”

Stroll – whose billionaire father part-owns the team – finished 15th in last year’s championship accruing 18 points.

He will be partnered in this year’s competition by Spain’s two-time world champion Fernando Alonso.
