His background, like his father, is in fashion, investing in clothing designers Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors.

In terms of F1, Stroll emerged when his son - Lance Stroll - made his debut with Williams in 2017.

In August 2018, Stroll led a consortium to buy the Force India F1 team for £90 million plus £15 million in debt, with the Silverstone-based outfit struggling financially.

The Canadian rebranded it as Racing Point in 2019 - putting his son, Lance, in the car alongside Sergio Perez.

Stroll then became executive chairman of the Aston Martin car company in 2020 following a $235.6 million (£182 million) investment. 

For the following year, Racing Point were rebranded again, this time as Aston Martin.

Stroll has outlined his ambitions of making Aston Martin a championship-winning outfit, signing four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel for 2021.

After two lacklustre seasons, Aston Martin propelled themselves up the order, starting F1 2023 as the second-fastest team, led by new signing Fernando Alonso.

With a new factory and wind tunnel on the way, things are looking bright for Aston Martin in the future.

Stroll was typically brash ahead of the F1 Canadian Grand Prix: “I’m extremely confident. I believe the car will be very strong around the Montreal circuit, it suits our car well…so I’m really looking forward to going home and really looking forward to a great race.”

To which Fernando Alonso replied: “You never know, but it is an aggressive target for the weekend.

“But we know Lawrence. His ambition is super high always and we will try to make him happy and proud in the home grand prix.”
