Tragedy may have struck: Stroll passed out in his Aston Martin in the middle of the F1 Qatar GP race


Many pilots suffered from extreme conditions in which the Qatar F1 GP was contested. An example of this is Fernando Alonso’s teammate at Aston Martin, Lance Stroll, who said he felt faint inside the car.

“It’s funny. At these temperatures, everything becomes cloudy. In the last 25 to 30 laps I was fuzzy in the high speed corners. Your blood pressure drops and you just pass out from the G forces in high-speed corners, basically.”Stroll commented when asked about the final penalty he received for exceeding track limits too many times, something that prevented him from finishing 9th.

“I can’t see where I’m going because I’m faint. It appears and disappears. The temperature is too high,” pointed out the Canadian, presenting a very dangerous situation.

If Lance Stroll had lost consciousness completely, he could have experienced a very dangerous accident, because he would not have prepared his body for the possible impact, something that could have complicated things.

Stroll said he passed out repeatedly in the last 20 or 25 laps, something that could explain why his helmet was seen moving too much on one of the occasions he sped across the finish line.
