Aston Martin is making a comeback to F1 after half a century. The English constructors had raced last at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in 1960. This year, they will race again in the same but altogether different sport. Equipped with Mercedes power and new strategies, their driver line up is excited to hit the track as soon as possible.
The English camp has signed Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll this season. With the German flying in from Italy and the Canadian already set with the team, it would be exciting to see them battle on the tracks. Geared with Vettel’s experience and Stroll’s determination, they are a real threat to the midfield.
Recently, Aston Martin officially announced their drivers with their first pictures in the green overalls. The team has declared that the color green will be the primary on the livery and the overalls.
With the two pilots well set to lift the team beyond the bar of success, Aston Martin may as well be looking forward to a powerful comeback.
The combination of Vettel and Lance may not look very promising. Agreed, Stroll Jr has shown little promise, and Vettel hasn’t been phenomenal at Ferrari; however, we can neither ignore the German’s championship-winning mettle nor Lance’s stint at the Turkish GP. They prove that under the right circumstances, they can take competitors for a spin.
Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll appear very optimistic about their future. Vettel would want to forget his time at Ferrari and turn over a new leaf at Aston Martin; he is aiminf to help the team reach higher than their P4 as Racing Point. As far as Lance is concerned, his words were enough.
“Seeing Aston Martin back in Formula One is a huge deal – especially with a new title partner, Cognizant. Whenever I’m at the factory, you can feel the buzz and energy. We’re ready for this. There’s so much hunger in the team and I just can’t wait to get the season started,” remarked Lance.
Aston Martin also announced their title sponsor a few days earlier, the IT company Cognizant. Since the announcement, everyone has been excited about the new entity on board this F1 voyage. Lawrence Stroll appears committed to make Aston Martin a great name in F1 again and even the CEO of Cognizant is excited about their new venture.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be the title partner of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team. Our global brands have much in common. We are both innovative, forward-looking firms that like to move fast, stay focused, and lead from the front.
“We’re excited by the promise of this deep and mutually beneficial partnership,” concluded Brian Humphries.
Packed with the goodies and a car that is fastest in the midfield block, the team prepares for the battle. How far will they fair? Only time shall tell.
