In 2010 Lance won four titles in the Florida Winter Tour before moving to the CIK-FIA World Championship in 2012 where he finished fifth overall. He competed in the series again in 2013 where he was again awarded as the best rookie.

Lance made the move away from karting in 2014, winning the Italian Formula 4 Championship with seven wins, 13 podiums and five pole positions. In 2015 he competed in the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand, where he picked up four wins and 10 podiums from 16 starts, sealing the title in the process. Following this, he made his debut in the Formula 3 European series, taking one win and six podiums to finish fifth overall with Italian outfit, Prema Powerteam. Lance was also part of the Ferrari Driver Academy before joining the Williams Young Driver Development Programme in November 2015.

Alongside the programme in 2016, Lance had been competing in the Formula 3 European Series with Prema Powerteam. He secured the title in dominant fashion with 14 wins and 14 pole positions to his name.

In his debut Formula One season, Lance broke two records by becoming the “youngest rookie podium finisher” with a third-place finish at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, as well as becoming the “youngest front-row starter”, after starting second in the Italian Grand Prix. Lance recorded seven points-scoring finishes during his rookie season, which saw him finish 12th in the Drivers’ Championship.
