Aston Martin 2024 Car

Aston Martin is set to introduce a markedly different approach with their 2024 Formula 1 car, featuring substantial alterations compared to the 2023 season.

Last winter, the Silverstone-based team emerged as a formidable competitor, initially positioning themselves as the closest rivals to Red Bull. They showcased the second-fastest car in the early stages of the 2023 season, although their performance waned as the year progressed.

Finishing fifth in the 2023 constructors’ championship, behind Red Bull, Mercedes, Ferrari, and McLaren, Aston Martin experienced a noticeable dip in performance mid-season.

To address this decline, significant changes have been made to the development of their 2024 car, the AMR24. This new car is scheduled for unveiling on February 12 at Silverstone.’s Lawrence Barretto reports that the AMR24 is expected to be a radical departure from its predecessors, hinting at a bold new direction for Aston Martin in the upcoming Formula 1 season: “looks very different to its predecessor on the outside, with a plethora of changes under the skin and away from prying eyes”.

“We are not heading into 2024 with a hangover from 2023. Quite the opposite, in fact,” team principal Mike Krack commentated.

“[Last] season – and especially the races at the end of the season – have been very positive for us, with some really valuable learning that will carry over into the ’24 car. We’re not wrestling with any doubts.”

Aston Martin is no stranger to extensive redesigns of their race cars. Their 2023 model, the AMR23, represented a significant shift from its predecessor.

Just before the previous season began, Eric Bland, Aston Martin’s deputy technical chief, revealed that the team had revamped “more than 95 per cent of the aerodynamic surfaces” on the AMR23, indicating a significant overhaul in design.

Aston Martin seems to embrace a bold approach in their quest to become a leading team, as evidenced by their pursuit of frequent podium finishes with Fernando Alonso in 2023.

Throughout the season, Alonso achieved eight podium finishes, contributing significantly to his fourth-place finish in the world championship. With a revised car, the hope is that Lance Stroll will gather momentum in the upcoming 2024 season compared with 2023.
