Quebec’s Lance Stroll was unable to finish his race at the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday as he was forced to retire on the 21st lap due to a mechanical problem.
“My race on Sunday was interrupted due to a defect in the rear wing,” said Stroll on Sunday, whose words were quoted on Aston Martin’s website.

The 24-year-old driver had completed one more race before the mechanical problems occurred.
“It’s disappointing because I had a good start and was able to gain five places on the first lap and I think a point or two would have been possible,” he added.
His teammate Fernando Alonso, in turn, ended his working day in eighth place.
Verstappen and Red Bull dominate again
Max Verstappen continued his dominance on Sunday, winning his 13th Grand Prix of the season.
The Dutchman enables Red Bull to win its second constructors’ title in Formula 1 in its history.
With six races still left in the season, Verstappen is in a good position to secure his third world title.
The two McLaren team drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri finished the race in second and third place.
Drivers will benefit from two weeks of rest and return to the wheel on Friday October 6th during free practice for the Qatar Grand Prix.
