Montreal kid,11, accepted to Ferrari academy

Quote:
Ferrari has accepted the youngest recruit to its drivers' academy, an 11-year-old Canadian boy.Lance Stroll, from Montreal, has twice won the Canadian national championship in the Rotax Mini Max category.
Luca Baldisserri, who runs the Ferrari Driving Academy, says while Stoll is "very young," he has "already shown in karting that he is exceptionally talented."
Last year, he finished sixth in the World Finals at Lonato in the Mini Roc category and second in the Rotax Micro Max Florida Winter Tour.
Stroll was nominated by the Federation Sport Automobile du Quebec as 2008 Rookie of the Year, and Driver of the Year the following year.

I'll just be polite and say that Lawrence Stroll doesn't need any free puffy publicity.

On the other hand, if you had/have a father who is a good role model and a man of integrity, many kids would and should be jealous of you.

Please let's just talk about hockey here.

I am sure the kid is good, but in racing, money talks louder than in any other "sport". Cars are expensive, skilled work is expensive, track time is expensive, professional training is expensive.

So it costs money to become a contender, a it takes a hell of a lot more to take it to the next level. Sponsorship is the #1 name in the game.

The more money you bring to the table the easier it is to get a "ride" from a team.

Yes he is. Lawrence (Larry) Stroll is one of two brains behind the Hilfiger empire. The other is an Asian gentleman in Hong Kong. Tommy Hilfiger himself is just the designer, a figurehead if you'd like. Extremely well off to say the least.

Owns mansions in Westmount and Tremblant. He actually had a big say in the Tremblant airport becoming an international airport. The celebrity and jet set crowd fly in and out of Tremblant instead of flying into Dorval.

He is also the owner of the only Ferrari dealership in Montreal....

Whoa.

I wasn't saying that the topic should be banned, I was just suggesting, like a couple of others before me, that this "unusual situation" is simply money talking, and not of much true sporting interest.

People who have had the "pleasure" of knowing Lawrence Stroll totally understand how something like this could happen, especially since his passion for racing cars and Ferraris is well-documented. We're talking about a man who fired a Hilfiger production worker on the spot for refusing to get off a public elevator during his lunch hour in a multi-tenant office building, when Lawrence yelled at him to do so. His crime: daring to be in the company of his "betters".

I was no more impressed by how this privileged man treated my buddy the satellite installer and handyman, who was awakened by a call from "the butler" at 2am the morning prior to the Grand Prix. The butler was scared he was going to be tossed out on his a** in the middle of the night, after seven years of service, because Lawrence's satellite feed suddenly "went dead" at his Westmount mansion. My buddy was told he had to be at the estate by 3am to "fix his lousy installation", which in fact had been working perfectly for 2 years. He arrived at 3:05 am, had the problem fixed by 4am (the Stroll's gardener had sliced a cable wire), then was fired for showing up "late" and not paid for the work he did, nor for some fancy hardware the labourer had laid out the money for a couple of days before at Lawrence's request.

So, if Lawrence decided that he is now going to live vicariously through his boy getting to play with Ferrari toys, believe me when I say that everyone around him will make sure it happens.

I have nothing against rich folks, by the way. Look up the story of Kemmons Wilson, founder of Holiday Inn and other companies, to hear the case of a genuine man who built real value while respecting everyone around him.

Nobody should be envying this 11-year-old kid; in fact, I feel bad for him.
