The young sensation and go-kart racer from Canada, Lance Stroll, 11, made it to the Ferrari driving academy. Lance is the youngest ever recruit signing to Ferrari’s Driving Academy, in Italian team’s effort to develop the stars of the future. Before signing to the academy, Lance has many victories to his credit that include winnining Canadian national championship in the Rotax Mini Max category and last year finished sixth in the World Finals at Lonato in the Mini Roc category and second in the Rotax Micro Max Florida Winter Tour.

The move is deemed similar to that of former McLaren boss Ron Dennis’ signing of Lewis Hamilton at the age of 13 who won GP2 Series in 2006 and become McLaren driver. He won his first race in the 2007 season at the Canadian Grand Prix before going on to become the youngest world champion in 2008 aged just 23. Thought Lance is young and talented, yet it remains to be seen if he could achieve the same with Ferrari Badge what Lewis did with McLaren.
