The driver gap Aston Martin must address in F1 2021
By:

A famous motorsport moniker returns to Formula 1 in 2021. But, with Aston Martin still essentially the same as Racing Point, there's an element the team will want to fix for the new campaign if it is to better the recent success of its previous guise.

Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel are set to make history in the 2021 Formula 1 season.

Given the pace of the largely carried over RP20 car they will race in the upcoming campaign, they are surely certain to bring home points for their rebranded squad. The first points finish of the season will give the Aston Martin moniker its first ever in F1 - following the sportscar manufacturer's limited entry into the world championship six decades ago.

But the true measure of Stroll and Vettel's success in 2021 will, of course, come in the final points totals. And in 2020 this was costly for Aston - in its previous guise as Racing Point.
