Aston Martin comes from Force India, which became Racing Point following the acquisition of the team by Lawrence Stroll in 2018. Since then, the Canadian investor has put in place a plan to bring Aston Martin to the top of Formula 1.
Since its official conversion to Aston Martin in 2021, the team he alternated good performances with very disappointing ones and one could even say that it is the one that emerged the worst from the change in technical regulations implemented this season.
But Fernando Alonso saw potential in a team that has signed a lot in recent months, pointing out Martin Whitmarsh (CEO of Aston Martin Performance Technologies), said mike krack (team leader, manager), Luca Furbato (Director of Engineering) and Dan Fallows (technical director) among others.
Aston Martin also plans to build a new headquarters in Silverstone, which will have all the latest technologies. Will all this be enough to propel Fernando Alonso to the top again?
