London - Canadian teenager Lance Stroll is set to be the youngest driver in Formula 1 next season after being confirmed in the Williams lineup.

Stroll turned 18 in October 2016 and will replace the retiring Felipe Massa to team up with Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas. He will be the first Canadian on the grid since 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve left F1 more than a decade ago.

A winning talent?

Stroll, who has yet to obtain his road license, dominated this year's Formula Three championship, winning the series by more than 100 points.

He becomes the sport's youngest driver since Max Verstappen made his debut last year at 17.

Stroll said: "I can't thank Williams enough for showing faith in my ability. Racing in F1 was something I dreamt about as a young kid. When I began karting seriously, F1 was then the ultimate goal and especially when I started racing cars in 2014."
