Aston Martin Racing capped off their return to Formula One with an unveiling event which featured some all-star names and a beautiful British Racing green livery on their brand new AMR21.
One of the most used phrases in the launch event of the AMR21 was, ‘If it’s as quick as it looks then we’ll be in for a good season.’ and they were spot on with it. With the help of Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll, two drivers that are hungry to improve after last season, the British team are looking to compete for that third place they narrowly missed out on last year.
That being said, with World Championship winning experience in Vettel and the pace that their predecessors Racing Point showed towards the end of last season, we could very well see Aston Martin on the podium quite a bit this season.
As well as one of the nicest liveries on the grid, Aston Martin have probably put together the best new car reveal out of everyone so far. They had Santan Dave narrating their introduction in a beautiful cinematic history of the Aston Martin Racing team followed by a video message from seven-time Superbowl winner Tom Brady and ending with another video message from Mr Daniel Craig himself.
Aston Martin’s season will start with everyone else’s at pre-season testing on the 12th March in Sakhir. I can’t wait to see what Vettel can bring to the team and hope to see them challenging for podiums throughout the season.
