The driver gap Aston Martin must address in F1 2021
A famous motorsport moniker returns to Formula 1 in 2021. But, with Aston Martin still essentially the same as Racing Point, there's an element the team will want to fix for the new campaign if it is to better the recent success of its previous guise
Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel are set to make history in the 2021 Formula 1 season.
Given the pace of the largely carried over RP20 car they will race in the upcoming campaign, they are surely certain to bring home points for their rebranded squad. The first points finish of the season will give the Aston Martin moniker its first ever in F1 - following the sportscar manufacturer's limited entry into the world championship six decades ago.
But the true measure of Stroll and Vettel's success in 2021 will, of course, come in the final points totals. And in 2020 this was costly for Aston - in its previous guise as Racing Point.
It’s 60 years since BRM achieved its goal and Graham Hill led the team to a world title double. But that was just part of the remarkable story of a unique team that at times overstretched its resources and had its fair share of disappointments
OPINION: The effectiveness of DRS in Formula 1 remains a topic of debate as the winter break gives a chance for reflection on the racing we saw in 2022.

Multiple-title-winning designer and team boss Ross Brawn is finally leaving Formula 1 after nearly 50 years in motorsport. But he still has plenty of insights on what’s working and what comes next, as he revealed to Autosport in a far-reaching exclusive interview in Abu Dhabi
OPINION: Mattia Binotto’s departure from Ferrari will naturally bring a range of changes across the Formula 1 team. But how the changes shape up and the impact they could have is set to be dictated by a key direction Ferrari’s top dogs will need to pick
OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.
