Aston Martin F1 pulls the covers off all-new AMR23


Aston Martin F1 showcased its new 2023 Grand Prix challenger, the AMR23, at an event held at the team’s Silverstone base on Monday evening.

Lance Stroll and two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, who joins Aston this season, took to the stage to pull the covers off their new Mercedes-powered mount which has been described as a “significant evolution” of its 2022 predecessor, the AMR22.

Aston embarks on year three of the team’s ambitious five-year plan to join the fight at the front of the grid in F1, but the British outfit aims to be competitive from the outset this season.

“This year’s move into our new state-of-the-art factory is more than just a serious statement of intent,” explained AMF1 executive chairman Lawrence Stroll.

“It will considerably strengthen and empower every single individual in this organisation, helping us to deliver on our ambition to narrow the gap to the front of the grid and, in time, become genuine championship frontrunners.

“In the past year, we have demonstrated the determination and belief needed to move forward and we have constructed a brand-new car to match our vision and ambition.

“The talk today is of new energy – and, believe me, it feels like a fresh start and an incredibly promising and ambitious way to begin the new season.”

Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack underscored the importance of kicking into gear and hitting the ground running in Bahrain, and building the team’s momentum thereafter.

“Making a strong start to the year, and then maintaining that momentum, is necessary if we are to make further advances towards the front of the grid,” said Krack.

“And, as an organisation, we are working hard to achieve that, and to further strengthen all areas of the team.

“We already know the proven strengths of our design, engineering and build departments – the arrival of Fernando, partnering Lance, further underlines the sheer depth and range of our driver squad.

“It feels like every element of this organisation is really working well together.”
