Aston Martin launch 2023 F1 car

Aston Martin launched their 2023 F1 car at their Silverstone HQ


Aston Martin became the seventh F1 team to launch their 2023 car, as the Silverstone team continue with their British racing green livery for their third season since Lawrence Stroll rebranded Racing Point.

The team have worked hard on upgrading their infrastructure, building a new smart factory and wind tunnel, though that won’t have too much impact on the car that takes the track for preseason testing in Bahrain.

It wasn’t quite the extravaganza that Aston Martin put on in 2020 which featured Daniel Craig, but the team members that did speak stressed they were confident that 2023 will be the turning point for the team.

One of those was Fernando Alonso, who shocked the F1 world when he announced his switch from Alpine to Aston Martin, the seventh team change of his career. The Spaniard has a history of making the wrong career move at the wrong time but aged 41 it’s surely the last roll of the dice for the two-time world champion.

Draped under a union jack for the launch event, the car Alonso hopes will carry him to glory was revealed at Aston Martin‘s Silverstone HQ with less than two weeks to go until preseason testing.

Alonso and Lance Stroll will have just one and a half days each on track in Bahrain before the 23-race 2023 F1 season kicks off in March. Aston Martin also have Felipe Drugovich and Stoffel Vandoorne as reserve drivers.
