Racing Point driver Lance Stroll will be targeting his maiden win of the 2020 season at the Belgian Grand Prix on August 30.
The 21-year-old, who has a Canadian father and a Belgian mother, has never won a Formula One race and he will be hoping to change this in Belgium. 
Stroll finished 10th in last year's race at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps with his teammate Sergio Perez finishing sixth.

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc won the race and he was followed by Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, who finished second, and third respectively.
Stroll went on to finish the campaign 15th spot on the Drivers' World Championship standings, but he has come back rejuvenated in the 2020 season.
The Canada-born driver is currently placed fifth on the standings with 40 points - five behind fourth-placed Leclerc.
Mercedes driver Hamilton is sitting at the top of the standings with 132 points and he followed by Max Verstappen of Red Bull and Bottas, who have 95 and 89 points respectively.

Stroll reflected on his performance at the recent Spanish Grand Prix where he finished fourth and he revealed that he was looking forward to the Belgian Grand Prix.
“I had a great launch off the line. It felt good to pass a Mercedes for a few laps in third, it was nice. And then it was just a tyre management race," Stroll said. 
"We were aiming for a one-stop and then converted to a two, and it was nice to get fourth in the end. P4 was the maximum today. 
"It was good to battle with Checo on track for a bit too, even if it probably gave Otmar [Szafnauer, Racing Point CEO and Team Principal] a few more grey hairs," he added.
"I’m very excited about Spa. It’s a track that should suit our car in theory so I’m looking forward to it.”
Mercedes are placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point-BWT Mercedes.
