“We’ve implemented a lot of innovation in the new car – it’s the icing on the cake. Things that are nice to have but not necessary,” he said in an interview posted on the team’s website.

“It’s nice when you get a small opening and you can use it to your advantage, but it’s not often you can put the whole car around it. Instead, it’s important to get the basics right and then add things up,” Blandin continued. .

“When you start a new car project, you realize what your limitations were last year – and how you can overcome them with a new design – and define an architecture that will give you more power in the future”, he said.

Aston Martin tried to use the data collected from last season’s car to apply the knowledge to the 2023 car. This, added to the gap found, resulted in a completely different car.

“Most of the AMR23 is new, it is completely different from the AMR22. We changed more than 90% of the parts and more than 95% of the aerodynamic surfaces are different”, concluded the deputy director.

Aston Martin intends to unveil this year’s car on February 13 at the team’s Silverstone factory. According to Blandini, the bolide presented at the event will not be just a painting exhibition, but a real AMR23. With this, the British hope “not to disappoint the fans”.
