Current Aston Martin F1 Team (Formerly Racing Point F1)

The Aston Martin F1 Team, formerly known as Racing Point, formerly known as Force India, formerly known as Spyker F1, formerly known as Midland F1, formerly known as Jordan Grand Prix, is a formula 1 team based just outside the gates of the Silverstone race circuit in Northamptonshire, UK.

Despite the numerous name changes the team are still based in the very same factory created by Eddie Jordan decades ago.

The Aston Martin name returns to F1 as a team name for the first time since 1960. Aston Martin competed in six World Championship Grand Prix between 1959 and 1960 and scored no points. Team owner Lance Stroll will be hoping for more of a return on his investment this time.

Coming off the back of the 2020 season where the team, running as Racing Point, managed 3 podiums and a race victory, resulting in a 4th placed championship finish, hopes will be high for continued success.

The new era for Aston Martin commences with a driver line up of 4 time World Drivers Champion Sebastian Vettel who joins from Ferrari, and the Canadian Lance Stroll.

Anyway, welcome back to the madhouse Martin Whitmarsh. If you need to be brought up to speed on what's happening in the team I'm reliably informed Ralf Schumacher has the lowdown.

Otmar Szafnauer has left the Company and his role at Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team will be managed within the leadership team until a replacement is appointed.

We would like to thank him for the service provided to the team over the past 12 years and wish him well for the future as he will undoubtedly take on new challenges.

Fortunately, we are led and managed by a strong group of individuals, and we are comfortable to take a little time to explore options before announcing a new team structure. The focus of the team is currently on preparing the most competitive car possible for the start of the 2022 season.
doesnt help the rumours he vehemently denied in Brazil, he had a long-term contract & no intention of leaving aston martin. &
was as surprised as anyone by the media reports.

Otmar is going to Alpine to replace Brivio. Interesting to see how Aston Martin do now as Lawrence Stroll knows nothing about running an F1 team
what a name LOL

Can't have been good to have all that going on at the top regardless of who was right or wrong. The team went from 4th and almost 200 points in 2020 to 7th and 77 points in 2021.
