A big week of F1 car launches begins with Aston Martin who are launching their new AMR24 on Monday.
The big movers of last winter, Aston Martin will be hoping to deliver another significant jump in performance with their latest challenger, which is the first to be built at their state-of-the-art Silverstone factory which opened last summer.
Although they could not absolutely sustain the Red Bull-challenging form that saw them score six podiums in last season’s opening eight races, fifth place in the Constructors’ Championship was still a two-place improvement on each of the previous two campaigns.
With billionaire owner Lawrence Stroll having made clear his determination to take the team to the top of the sport, Aston Martin have used the tagline of ‘hyper focus’ on social media in the build-up to their launch and go in to 2024 chasing a first race win since rebranding under the name of the iconic British manufacturer three years ago.
Fernando Alonso, the 2005 and 2006 world champion, and Lance Stroll continue in an unchanged driver line-up.
