The latest Bond movie has been a part of Formula One for quite some time now; the two have Aston Martin as their point of intersection. The Aston Martin F1 team has been running a 007 branding on their car and all over the paddock, as a way to promote the new film.

So, it was not a surprise when Aston Martin F1 driver Lance Stroll was seen during the World Premiere of No Time to Die. Lance visited the event with his girlfriend Sara Pagliaroli.

Along with Lance, Williams driver George Russell also attended the event with his girlfriend, Carmen Mundt. Kimi Raikkonen was also seen in attendance, along with his wife, Minttu Raikkonen.

Red Bull F1 team boss Christian Horner attended the event as well. He was accompanied to the premiere by his wife, Geri Horner. The former Spice Girl put on a sensational white asymmetrical maxi dress as she arrived at the event.

Currently sitting in seventh position with 59 points, Aston Martin have failed to achieve their target of leading the midfield till now. With Sebastian Vettel 12 and Lance Stroll 13 in the drivers’ standings, the car hasn’t been able to beat the AlphaTauri or the Alpine regularly.
