Aston Martin has unveiled the AMR23 ahead of the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship.
The launch took place at their new Silverstone campus that is due to open in the coming months, with drivers Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso in attendance to take the covers of the car.
The AMR23 has a similar livery to last season but like most teams, has opted for more carbon fibre on display as the battle to reduce weight heats up.
In 2023, the team will be hoping to build on their end to the 2022 season which saw them become a consistent points scorer with the help of four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel before his retirement.
Lawrence Stroll, AMF1 Executive Chairman, said: “This year’s move into our new state-of-the-art factory is more than just a serious statement of intent: it will considerably strengthen and empower every single individual in this organisation, helping us to deliver on our ambition to narrow the gap to the front of the grid and, in time, become genuine championship frontrunners.
“In the past year, we have demonstrated the determination and belief needed to move forward and we have constructed a brand-new car to match our vision and ambition.
“Across our partner portfolio, I want to offer my best wishes to Ravi Kumar, who has just been appointed CEO at Cognizant, a company with whom we share an inspired vision. To the team at Aramco, who have shown incredible faith in this organisation, and to all our partners, I extend my thanks for joining us on this unique journey.
“The talk today is of new energy – and, believe me, it feels like a fresh start and an incredibly promising and ambitious way to begin the new season.”
Mike Krack, Team Principal, said: “The second half of 2022 showed real signs of progress as we worked hard on car development. For this year, our aim must be to build a car that can fully deliver on its performance potential from the first moment it hits the track.
“Making a strong start to the year, and then maintaining that momentum, is necessary if we are to make further advances towards the front of the grid. And, as an organisation, we are working hard to achieve that, and to further strengthen all areas of the team.
“We already know the proven strengths of our design, engineering and build departments – the arrival of Fernando, partnering Lance, further underlines the sheer depth and range of our driver squad. It feels like every element of this organisation is really working well together.
“Finally, we would like to thank all of our fans for their unwavering support, and we look forward to seeing you across the world this season.”
