Stroll: Same two corners on PlayStation

Date published: May 25 2017

Lance Stroll have revealed that it is just not in real life that he wrestles with the Monaco corners, he has had similar difficulties on his PlayStation.

The Williams driver became the sole driver to crash out of Thursday’s practices when he got it wrong at Massenet.

He lost the rear of his car at the top of the hill and crashed into the barriers before sliding down to Casino Square.

“I was really happy with the day, other than the little crash at the end,” Stroll told Autosport.

“I’m going to look at the little areas that I need to improve on for Saturday – corner eight [Portier] and the last corner are the two places I really need to improve on.

“It really pisses me off, because every time I play the PlayStation game, it’s always those corners that I couldn’t get right, and in reality it’s still those two corners!

“So that’s the focus for Saturday, a bit more time in the car in FP3 and still build up to a few parts of the track.”

Asked to explain what went wrong causing the accident, he called it a “typical” street circuit error.

He said: “I just sent it in, kind of looking for the limit.

“I lost the rear and got into the dirt a little bit – typical street circuit mistake.

“If you don’t touch the wall in Monaco you’re not on the limit.

“At least I knew I was pushing, I know where I need to be on Saturday and I have FP3 to get back into it.”
