Fans are only just realising what F1 star Lance Stroll's real name is | The Sun
FANS have been left stunned after only just discovering Formula One star Lance Stroll's real name.
The Aston Martin driver, 24, has recently confirmed that he is dating model Marilou Belanger.
But despite his healthy love-life, the Canadian has had a tough time on the track and is yet to gain a podium finish this season.
He only managed 11th place at the recent Dutch GP despite being cheered on by his new squeeze.
And that was followed by a disappointing 16th place finish at Sunday's Monza GP in Italy.
Race supporters recently got talking as rumours began to spread that Stroll could be planning to swap his seat in F1 for a new career as a tennis player.

However, those reports were quickly dismissed by his Aston Martin team, although he has now set tongues wagging again.
The star has been around for some time now after entering F1 as an 18-year-old in 2017 and he has also secured three podium finishes to date.
But it seems that not many people actually realised that he was holding a secret regarding his true identity.
His real name is actually Lance Strulovitch (which is shortened to Stroll).

And his 62-year-old billionaire father's real name is actually Lawrence Strulovitch, although he too goes by the surname of Stroll.
The star, who will next be in action at the Singapore GP on September 17, is of Russian Jewish descent from his father's side.
He also holds both Canadian and Belgian citizenship, with the latter due to the nationality of his mother.
His true surname has previously been revealed before, but after it emerged again on social media, fans appeared to be in complete shock.
One tweeted: “Did you know that Lance Stroll's full name is Lance Strulovitch? Me neither!”
Another said: “When was someone gonna tell me that Lance Stroll’s name is actually Lance Strulovitch?”
While a fellow fan said: “STRULOVITCH that’s such a cool name like aaaaaaaa.”
