How Aston Martin has been "aggressive" with its 2023 F1 car design

By:

The buzzword from Aston Martin’s AMR23 Formula 1 car launch was aggression, as it aims to create a design to suit its drivers and new mentality. By taking development paths forged by others while also exploring new ones, can the car match the team’s ambition?

In the creation of its 2022 Formula 1 car, Aston Martin opted to produce a car that could be theoretically developed along multiple different paths. If an early prevailing wind suggested that a certain direction was particularly bountiful, the Silverstone squad could follow that road and develop around it.

As it happened, Red Bull cemented itself as an early favourite and Aston’s design team had the kit to match it. It earned the team “Green Red Bull” taunts in the process, but it nonetheless reacted to the best design path and helped haul the team out of the rut it began the season in.
