F1 boss Lawrence Stroll owns the world’s most expensive car, owned a £ 200 million yacht and married a Brazilian beauty 37 years her junior.
The 62-year-old Canadian businessman is a co-owner of the Aston Martin team.

He has put together a collection of vintage Ferraris valued at over £ 2 billion.
The jewel in the crown is his Ferrari 250 GTO – the most expensive car in the world – which is now worth around £ 50 million.
The mega-rich stroll, who made part of his fortune by investing in fashion houses Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors, also spent his vacations aboard his £ 200 million superyacht, sometimes with buddy Michael Douglas.
Last year he married the Brazilian Raquel Diniz, 35, on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
BORN IN MONEY
Stroll is the son of the Jewish fashion importer Leo Strulovitch.
The family grew up in Montreal, Quebec, where the father introduced Canadians to brands like Pierre Cardin and Ralph Lauren.
He later brought Ralph Lauren to Europe.
Investing in luxury brands runs in the family for Stroll, who made his millions selling stakes in Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors, which provided him with considerable resources.
However, he still has a stake in British Mayfair jeweler Asprey & Garrard.

Stroll started his F1 dream in 2018, bought into the Force One team, renamed it Racing Point Force India and started the season at halftime.
In 2019 they became the Racing Point F1 Team – with Lawrence hiring his son Lance as one of his drivers.
A year later, Stroll led a consortium that invested £ 182 million in Aston Martin to get a 16.7 percent stake in the company.
That year the Racing Point F1 team was renamed Aston Martin again.
Buying an F1 team came as no surprise considering Stroll is obsessed with fast cars.
Over the years he has amassed a collection of cars that is said to be worth an astonishing £ 140 million.
Ferraris are his greatest passion and have a super fleet of them to envy.
He donated £ 20million in 2013 for a rare 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB and has several LaFerraris, including the latest model.
But most impressive is certainly his Ferrari 250 GTO.
Allegedly the most expensive car in the world, it fetched around £ 50 million in a private sale to American businessman David MacNeil in 2018.
Other cars in his collection are McLarens and a Ford GT.

For Lawrence Stroll, he had to have Faith … his super yacht worth around £ 200 million.
The 62 meter long ship, which was docked during the Monaco race weekend, was built in 2017.
Its notable features include a glass-bottom swimming pool with a waterfall, a beach club, and a wet bar.
There is a fireplace in the main lounge, a charcoal sundeck and a pizza oven.
Stroll has invited friends on board, including film star Michael Douglas with Catherine Zeta Jones.
Made In Chelsea star Kimberly Garner was also spotted wearing a revealing bikini with son Lance, which sparked rumors the couple were dating.
According to recent reports, Stroll has split up with Faith and sold her to Michael Latifi, the father of Williams driver Nicholas Latifi.
It is believed that Stroll is building an 80 meter yacht in the Netherlands to replace it.

When you own a racing car team, whoever you want is easy. And it just so happens that Lawrence’s son Lance drives for Aston Martin.
The 23-year-old started some controversy with Williams in 2017 and was considered a “pay driver”.
Lawrence bought their Prema F3 team and appointed the well-known Ferrari engineer Luca Baldisserri to mentor his son – he spent £ 60 million, according to Auto Motor und Sport.
He also injected the money into a high-tech simulator in Williams’ racing workshop that drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa couldn’t use because it was calibrated for F3.
Before joining Williams, however, Lance had experience in competitive motorsport, winning the Italian F4 Championship, the Toyota Racing Series and the F3 European Championship in the open-wheel junior categories.
“Everyone has their own opinion, I can’t change that,” Lance told the Times.
“I come from the money, I won’t deny that. But I think I won my attempt in F1 because I’ve won every championship I’ve competed in singles.”

Stroll was married to Belgium-born Claire-Ann Callens, with whom he had Lance and their daughter Chloe.
But for the past few years, it has been the stunning Brazilian beauty Raquel Diniz who could be seen on his arm in the pit lane.
The 35-year-old is a fashion designer who founded her own fashion brand in 2016.
Her elegant dresses and bohemian dresses are sold on FARFETCH for thousands of pounds.
Last year, Stroll took over Mustique Island for three days when he and Raquel walked down the aisle in an elaborate ceremony.
Over 300 guests were invited, some of whom lived in his £ 70 million home called The Great House.
When the couple are not on vacation in the Caribbean, they live in their homes in London, Geneva, and Quebec.
It’s a life in the fast lane that Lawrence clearly loves.
