Entering 2021, Racing Point became Aston Martin. The team, which in recent years has been marked by pink, is now in green, and the driving lineup consists of Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel. The head of the team is still Otmar Szafnauer, who says that his team can defend the honor of the famous name Aston Martin from the very beginning of the season.
He believes that it is a great honor to be part of this team and that he does not doubt the good results. The most important thing will be the mentality and harmony in the team if they want to succeed “We’ve had almost a whole year of preparation to get to this point and we’re looking forward to seeing the reactions when we finally discover our new Aston Martin Formula One Team identity."
"Presenting such a legendary brand is a huge privilege for every member of the team. We have deservedly earned a reputation as a team that attacks beyond our real capabilities, so we are confident we can defend the honor of the Aston Martin name from the start.
” “This is the start of a new journey and I feel extra energy in the team, a determination to look for performance more intensely than ever before. Combined with some of the most creative thinkers in this business, the mentality of true runners, and the spirit that we can do everything that has accompanied us all these years, we have many reasons to be excited about the future, ”said Szafnauer.
The person behind this transformation from pink to green, from Racing Point to Aston Martin is owned by Lawrence Stroll. The Canadian took over the legendary British luxury car manufacturer last year. “Formula 1 is a huge platform that will play a key role in Aston Martin’s overall strategy as we strive to improve the company.
We believe that participating in a global sports competition with a huge audience can help launch our brand and increase its popularity around the world. ” “This is a brand that has already had huge successes at top international car competitions like the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, and now we have the opportunity to print a new page of history books.
This is very exciting for all Aston Martin fans, Formula 1 fans and the sport itself, ”said Stroll. It will be very interesting to see how Aston Martin will fare in its debut season, and who knows, maybe one day they will become number one.
