It’s been six decades since the name “Aston Martin” has officially been in a Grand Prix. While they have taken part as a sponsor for Red Bull, Aston Martin is now back with their very own Formula 1 team. This new team will make its debut on March 21, 2021 in Melbourne, Australia. Their two drivers will be none other than Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll, a pair who have individually proven themselves as top-tier drivers. What’s next for Formula 1 fans in regards to the Aston Martin Formula 1 team is the unveiling of their car which will be shown to all in February, although a specific date has not been given as of yet. Be sure to check back with us for more information as it’s announced.
Lawrence Stroll, the Aston Martin Lagonda Executive Chairman, has this to say regarding the Formula 1 team: “Formula 1 is a hugely powerful platform that will play a key part in the overall Aston Martin strategy as we seek to take the company forward. It is a truly global sport with a huge audience that we believe can help reignite the brand and further increase its desirability all over the world. This is a brand that has already had huge success in top-level international motorsport such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans – and now we have an opportunity to write a new page in the history books. That’s a hugely exciting prospect for anyone who is a lover of the Aston Martin brand, for fans of Formula 1 and the sport itself.”
