Fernando Alonso shuts down the claim that Aston Martin copied Red Bull

Fernando Alonso has categorically dismissed speculation that Aston Martin’s 2021 car design has been heavily influenced by Red Bull’s 2020 model, asserting that any likeness between the two vehicles is purely coincidental.

The Spanish two-time world champion, who will drive for the British team this season, insisted that the similarities between the two cars are superficial and that Aston Martin’s design is wholly original.

“I can confirm that there is no truth to the suggestion that Aston Martin has plagiarized Red Bull’s car design,” Alonso said. “The Aston Martin 2021 car is a unique and original work of engineering, and any resemblance to Red Bull’s car is superficial.”

He went on to stress that Aston Martin has adopted an innovative approach to the design of its 2021 car, and that its new livery has been developed with the help of some of the most advanced aerodynamic simulation technology available.

“Our team has a wealth of experience and expertise in the world of Formula 1, and we have worked hard to create a car that is both aerodynamically efficient and aesthetically pleasing,” Alonso said. “We have been pushing the boundaries of aerodynamic performance and the end result is a car that looks and performs like no other on the grid.”

Alonso also pointed out that the 2021 season will be a difficult one for all teams, with the new regulations meaning that teams will have to adapt quickly to the changes.

“We are all in the same boat this season,” he said. “The new regulations mean that teams will have to be creative in order to stay competitive, and I’m confident that Aston Martin will rise to the challenge.”
