After receiving medical treatment from the centre, Mike Krack commented “Stroll will be back in the car come Friday for the start of the Japanese Grand Prix weekend, he’s generally sore.”

“If you have an incident like that, you stress your muscles anyway. The analogy is that if you spend a very hard day in the gym, then also you feel not great, so this is where we’re at.

“I think it’s the right decision to be ready for Japan because it’s already in a couple of days.

“The important thing is that he is fine and everything else is secondary.”

When he was asked whether there was any chance of Stroll not participating in Suzuka, the German replied with “Zero.”
