Ini Dia Kereta Formula 1 Aston Martin Sejak 61 Tahun
Pasukan Formula 1 Cognizant Aston Martin memasuki musim 2021 dengan kenderaan ini.
Bila bercakap tentang jenama sukan permotoran Inggeris yang hebat, Aston Martin sebenarnya adalah salah satu yang paling terkenal. Mereka adalah jenama dengan sejarah yang bermula sejak awal abad ke-20 dengan sejarah perlumbaan pasca-Perang yang dicemburui.
Sehingga ke hari ini, mereka menjalankan program sukan permotoran yang sangat berjaya dengan kereta seperti Vantage yang meninggalkan kesan yang mendalam. Sekarang mereka kembali ke Formula 1 setelah meninggalkanya selama 61 tahun dengan pasukan ayah-anak dan akhirnya mereka telah memperkenalkan kereta yang akan digunakan.
Mereka juga membina kilang baharu di Silverstone untuk menyokong usaha F1 mereka.
Ini siaran media Aston Martin dengan lebih maklumat.
The AMR21, to be raced this season by four-time F1TM World Champion Sebastian Vettel (DE) and rising star Lance Stroll (CA), carries a striking Aston Martin Racing Green livery in recognition of Aston Martin’s traditional racing colours and glorious sporting legacy. It is also bedecked by a host of global partners, led by American IT giant Cognizant, while the chassis features a magenta stripe down the side in reference to the team’s longstanding partner BWT.
Today’s event also threw the spotlight on an energizing shift within Aston Martin as the team is set to become the global showcase for the brand’s engineering and performance capabilities. Indeed a new 200,000 square-foot facility will complement the existing Aston Martin F1TM factory at Silverstone when completed in the second half of 2022, and the team is well positioned to become an innovation lab to drive forward the brand’s future road car technologies. These will include the suite of mid-engined sportscars, inspired by the Aston Martin Valkyrie, which will become central to the product portfolio through the next decade.
It may have been absent from F1™ for 61 years, but Aston Martin’s competitive credentials are firmly intact – the company was formed by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford in 1913 with motorsport at the heart of its endeavour. Next year will mark a century since Aston Martin made its grand prix debut (in France 1922), and the brand has enjoyed sustained success in sportscar racing, including overall victory in the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans. Most recently Aston Martin became a double class winner with the Vantage GTE in last year’s race at La Sarthe and is the reigning GT FIA World Endurance Manufacturers’ champion.
The Aston Martin Cognizant Formula OneTM Team also boasts a strong bloodline, building on the foundations of Team Silverstone, which in its various guises has won five grands prix, and is coming off the back of a race-winning campaign as the Racing Point Formula One™ Team, having been revitalized under the leadership of Lawrence Stroll and Team Principal and CEO Otmar Szafnauer.
The new AMR21, powered by a turbo-charged Mercedes-AMG F1 M12 E Performance engine with hybrid energy recovery, will run for the first time at Silverstone during a promotional day on 4 March, 2021, before embarking on a full test programme at Bahrain on 12-14 March.
