Aston Martin is the team fashionable in Formula 1. The Brits, who finished 2022 as the seventh team on the grid level on points with Alfa Romeo, started highligths with a one hundred percent renewed car and with a Fernando Alonso amazed in Bahrain for stand on the podium con the Red Bull. The car drives, runs and appears to be a clear candidate for victories that same season.
something that seemed impossible when Alonso signed with them, in the summer of last year. At that time, the Silverstone team just beat Williams in the World Cup, and they were used to falling in Q1 and occupying the last places in the race.
But all that has changed. Winter work at the factory, con Dan Fallows, ex-Red Bull, and Eric Blandin, ex-Mercedes, managed to bring the AMR23 to life in the best of ways. The fight is no longer with Alpine or McLaren. The fight is with Mercedes and with Ferrari.
“Alonso can achieve something…”
Alonso surpassed them at Sakhir. Stroll, practically single-handed, was ahead of George Russell. In front, yes, the Red Bull. The inaccessible Red Bull a priori.
Yes, but everything is possible in a race. Mark Webber, energy drink brand ex, spoke out a “motorsport” you have with options on Aston Martin to be able to win.
“Yes, yes they can win. Of course it depends on the Red Bulls. If they have the reliability their wins are assured… but Alonso can get a win in one day. I’m sure can get something” asserts Webber forcefully.
The ocean man, a great friend of Alonso who even put a possible date for your farewell, is more than so happy for him as by the Aston Martin team.
“They deserve the podium”
“The podium is extremely special… but Red Bull controlled the times. They were going slowly. But let’s see how the Aston performs on tracks with less degradation. I am very happy for Alonso and for the team. They deserve it,” concludes Mark.
The next meeting will be Saudi Arabia, then Australia. Seeing how was the car in bahrain, and the points where it was the strongest, who knows if we will have more podiums this month…
