Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll drive together for Aston Martin in the 2024 Formula One World Championships, competing against each other in every race.
The two drivers are completely on an opposite spectrum when it comes to experience in F1. While the 42-year-old two-time World Champion has plenty, his 25-year-old teammate from Canada still has a lot to learn.
Stroll has been part of the team since its inception in 2021 in its new era, but he was also part of the Racing Point since 2019, which was technically the same team before it was rebranded in 2021.
On the other hand, Alonso drove for Alpine in 2021 and 2022, joining the team for the 2023 season, which was the first for these two drivers as teammates.
Surprisingly for both, it was a very successful season for Aston Martin, as they managed to construct a great car, and both drivers helped to deliver consistent results, but the Spaniard showed his vast experience on the track.
Alonso outscored Stroll (206 vs. 74) and he also collected all eight of the team's podiums in the season, while finishing fourth in the World Drivers' Championships, a lot ahead tenth Stroll.

2024 Bahrain Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

After a very successful 2023 season, no one, even Aston Martin, knew what to expect from the 2024 season. It started surprisingly well when Alonso qualified sixth, while Stroll was only 12th.
The Canadian's weekend went from bad to worse, when he got rear-ended by Nico Hulkenberg on the opening lap of the race, however, Stroll managed to put together and incredible recovery drive to finish 10th, collecting an important point and finishing only one place behind his teammate, who crossed the finish line ninth.

2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

The second race of the season proved that Aston Martin has a very decent qualifying pace, at least in the hands of Fernando Alonso, who qualified in P4. Stroll improved his previous qualifying result but was only fast enough for P10.
The number 18 driver then had another race, which he wanted to forget as soon as possible. He crashed after hitting the wall on entry into turn 22 just after seven laps of the race and DNFed.
Aston Martin was worried about their race pace after the first Grand Prix of the season. However, the team was relieved after Alonso scored a P5, finishing ahead of George Russell, Lando Norris, and Lewis Hamilton.

2024 Australian Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

The 2024 Australian Grand Prix could be considered a success for Aston Martin and for Stroll especially, as it was the first time in 2024 that he managed to finish ahead of his teammate.
Still, the Canadian driver didn't cross the finish line in front of Alonso, as the Spanish driver actually finished sixth, with his teammate right behind him.
However, Alonso was given a 20-second time penalty after a no-contact incident with George Russell on Lap 56, when he broke too early for the corner, causing the British driver to crash, according to the FIA.
As a result, he tumbled down the order to P8, with Stroll moving to place number six, two spots ahead of his teammate.

2024 Japanese Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

The Grand Prix in Japan brought mixed results for Aston Martin. While their more experienced driver managed to qualify in P5 and turn it into P6 and eight points in the race, Stroll struggled in the qualifying, finishing 16th, and improving only to P12 in the race.

2024 Chinese Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

The Chinese Grand Prix brought the first Sprint weekend of the season, and experienced Alonso benefited from that. He used wet conditions in the Sprint Shootout to his advantage, placing 3rd, while Stroll struggled, still during dry conditions, to get his Aston Martin out of SQ2.
However, their fortunes turned in the Sprint. Stroll had a solid race, but couldn't improve much, finishing only 14th, and while the Spanish driver was able to keep his Aston Martin in the third place for the vast majority of the Sprint, he collided with Carlos Sainz on Lap 16, picked up a puncture, and was forced to retire from the Sprint.
That didn't distract the 42-year-old from achieving a great result in the qualifying for the Grand Prix, as he secured P3, with Stroll improving compared to Sprint Shootout, but still missing out on Q3, placing only 11th.
The race proved to be a mixed bag for both drivers. While Alonso managed to keep up with the pact of the rivals, and even set the fastest lap of the Grand Prix on his way to finishing seventh, thanks to a different strategy in the closing stages of the race, Stroll was involved in an incident, as he hit Ricciardo from behind, and after serving a 10-second penalty, finished 15th.

2024 Miami Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

The Miami Grand Prix was Aston Martin's worst race weekend of the season until that point. Even though it was a sprint weekend, the British team took home only two points.
It could have been better, but both Alonso and Stroll were unlucky at the start of the sprint race and became victims of an incident caused by Hamilton, who sent a big divebomb into the first corner.
Stroll had to retire his car, and Alonso finished the sprint race with significant damage in P17. The Canadian driver out-qualified his more experienced teammate in both qualifying sessions of the weekend.
However, the Spanish matador was the one who scored those two points for Aston. He finished the race in P9, while Stroll crossed the line in P17 (not scoring points for the third consecutive weekend).

2024 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Summary - Alonso vs Stroll:

Emilia Romagna Grand Prix could have been the turning point for the British team as they introduced the biggest upgrade out of anyone on the grid (and there were many upgrade packages at Imola).
However, Aston's upgraded car didn't seem to work as desired. This upgrade didn't move the British team much closer to the top four at all.
Moreover, Alonso made two big mistakes during the weekend. First, he crashed the car in FP3, and then he almost crashed again in Qualifying.
The Spanish matador lost control of his car, went off the track, and probably damaged the floor of his car, which meant he couldn't qualify better than P19. Disappointingly, that was also the result of the double World Champion scoring on Sunday.
Lance Stroll outperformed the Spaniard in both the qualifying session and the race. He qualified in P13 and then finished the race in P9.
