Aston Martin Team Profile
Aston Martin are set to return to Formula 1 in 2021 after over 60 years away from the sport as a constructor.
They will take over from Racing Point following owner Lawrence Stroll's investment in the historic English car company.
With Racing Point having finished P4 in 2020, there is plenty to be hopeful about and those involved now under the new Aston Martin name are not holding back with their expectations.
Owner Stroll has called Aston Martin's return to Formula 1 a "landmark moment" and has also stressed that fans will be at the heart of everything they do.
He discussed his aims with the BBC: “My aim with this, like the other businesses I’ve owned, is to win.
“F1 is a process that takes years to be successful. It’s not an overnight thing, but no business is built overnight. This will be the same. I want to continue where we finished last year, only stronger.
“We had several podiums, we had a win. I’d like this year to have several more podiums and another win or two – step by step, fighting for more and more wins.”
Tasked with making them a top team to contend with the likes of Mercedes and Red Bull are drivers Lance Stroll, son of Lawrence, and Sebastian Vettel who joined from Ferrari in the post-season.
Team principal Otmar Szafnauer has described the pairing as an "ideal blend", citing Vettel's experience and Stroll's raw talent.
