Aston Martin fires 2024 F1 car on track IMMEDIATELY after launch

Aston Martin have launched the brand new AMR24 from their factory in Silverstone and put it straight on track ahead of the start of the season.

The team hope that this year’s car, which is a heavy evolution of last year’s AMR23, can achieve as much if not more than its predecessor.

Featuring their usual colour scheme, but with a whole lot more paint than other teams on the grid so far, the car has a striking look.

The car has already had a shakedown with Lance Stroll having gotten behind the wheel on a cold February morning.

On the cusp of fighting for race victories at times, Fernando Alonso fell just short of achieving a first win in a decade at both the Monaco and Canadian Grands Prix in 2023.

Lance Stroll will remain alongside his two-time champion team-mate Alonso for this campaign, despite strong calls to replace the struggling Canadian for this year.

Krack: Every area of the car has been refined

Speaking in a press release to the media, team principal Mike Krack revealed where the team have placed their energy over the winter break.

“It is the result of a huge effort by the whole team at our new AMR Technology Campus and it will allow the team to take another step forward in 2024,” he said.

“Since the last race in 2023, everyone has been hyper-focused on improvements in every area, concentrating our efforts on what really makes a difference, what really matters to be better.

“Almost every area of the car has been refined and improved, building on our strengths, and taking on board the lessons of the previous campaign.”

With just over a week until pre-season testing begins in Bahrain, the sport’s third longest serving team principal will be hoping that this is the year they can compete with Red Bull and secure a first win in their history.

Time is running out with Alonso’s contract set to expire at the end of the year, leaving them keen to tie him down long-term and enjoy some success in the meantime.
