Ferrari has signed 11-year-old Canadian Lance Stroll to its Driver Academy programme.
Stroll, born in 1998, is the youngest driver to enter the Maranello squad's programme.
The 11-year-old has two wins in the Canadian national championship in the Rotax Mini Max category as well as Coupe de Montreal and Coupe du Quebec Micro Max Championship in 2008 and both Mini Max Championships in 2009.
"We are pleased to welcome Lance to our group," said Luca Baldisserri, who runs the Ferrari Driving Academy. "He is very young, but he has already shown in karting that he is exceptionally talented.
"We will follow him step by step in his forthcoming events in North America and he will soon also take part in our courses at Maranello."
