Aston Martin technical director Dan Fallows has underlined the "key message" he will impart to the team he has taken from his success with Red Bull.

Fallows made the move to the Silverstone-based marque in the spring of last year to head up the technical department after taking charge of aerodynamic matters at Red Bull.

Whilst at Milton Keynes, Fallows enjoyed a number of championship successes and was part of the department responsible for the team's incredible run in 2022 under F1's new regulatory period.

"I do have experience of what it means to win races and win championships.

"The key message is that you just have to make sure that with every aspect of what you're doing there are no holes, there are no things which you're doing that can be compromised or can compromise your performance as you go along."
