Fernando Alonso, Aston Martin AMR23

Has Alonso made the right choice gambling on Aston Martin F1?

The double Formula 1 champion’s move to Aston Martin looked a strange one last summer, but the people involved reckon it’s making more and more sense as time goes by - a view only supported by a strong showing in Bahrain testing.

“The passion comes from excitement. When I get excited about something, I get very passionate. And when I get very passionate, I win.”

Standing in front of the new AMR23, the car covered by a Union Jack flag ahead of its official unveiling, team owner Lawrence Stroll again underlines his unwavering commitment to making Aston Martin a force in Formula 1. Since acquiring the old Force India operation in 2018, Stroll has made a number of big statement moves: rebranding as Aston Martin for 2021; signing four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel from Ferrari; committing to building a £200million factory, complete with a new, state-of-the-art wind tunnel.
