Even though he’s five years away from getting even a temporary driver’s license, 11-year-old Lance Stroll has already been made a member of Ferrari’s elite driving team. The not-even-teenaged Montrealer was recently signed by the Ferrari Driver Academy based on his impressive results in national karting races. Stroll’s father Lawrence is among the richest men in Canada and is an avid collector of pricey Ferraris. Lance, described as a “natural talent,” will now be the youngest of the 12 drivers recruited by the storied automaker, which aims to groom its prodigies into top-notch F1 racers.
