Aston Martin has confirmed CEO and team principal Otmar Szafnauer has left the Silverstone-based outfit.

Szafnauer had worked with Aston Martin through its various guises since 2009.

In a statement announcing his departure, Aston Martin said: "Otmar Szafnauer has left the Company and his role at Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team will be managed within the leadership team until a replacement is appointed.

"We would like to thank him for the service provided to the team over the past 12 years and wish him well for the future as he will undoubtedly take on new challenges.

"Fortunately, we are led and managed by a strong group of individuals, and we are comfortable to take a little time to explore options before announcing a new team structure.

"The focus of the team is currently on preparing the most competitive car possible for the start of the 2022 season."

Szafnauer's future with Aston Martin had been the subject of much speculation towards the end of last year with the Romanian-American dismissing rumours of a potential move to midfield rivals Alpine as "pure media speculation".
