Lance Stoll believes that a more proactive strategy from Racing Point at the Chinese Grand Prix could have brought him points.
Stroll started the race from the back of the grid but made his way up a number of positions at the start of the race.
The Canadian described how Alexander Albon undercut the team which cost it points at the race, as the Toro Rosso went on to finish in tenth place.
"We were in front of Albon before the first stop and then he undercut us by one lap and finished in the points, so it’s a bit of a shame,” said Stroll.
“We could have been more proactive, because we didn’t have anyone immediately in front of us.
“I think it was Sergio [Perez] or [Kimi] Raikkonen ahead at the time, about five seconds up the road, so we weren’t really fighting anyone in front and we had Albon three seconds behind.
“It was just a classic undercut. It’s disappointing, because once that happened we were in his dirty air and it was tough to overtake.
Racing Point pitted Stroll 11 laps from the end for the soft tyre, and although he passed Kevin Magnussen on the final lap, it wasn't enough to jump into the top ten.
“We tried an extra stop at the end and got past Magnussen to finish P12, but it could have been more.
“Our race pace was not bad but we just need to look at the strategy, because I think we may have been able to pick up a point.”
Racing Point still managed to score points at the event, with Sergio Perez crossing the line in eighth place, after perfecting a one-stop strategy.
