Formula 1: Aston Martin recognition for Alonso

A Formula 1 season is a five-race season. There was a lot going on in those five races. The year has been going very well for Aston Martin so far. After mediocre results last year, they are currently one of the best teams in Formula 1. Veteran Fernando Alonso in particular is getting one good result after another.

In four out of five Formula 1 races, there was a podium finish. After the two Red Bull drivers, Alonso is currently the third team. However, Aston Martin curbs the current excitement and offers a grim forecast.

Formula 1: Aston Martin holds back the fun

Sebastian Vettel’s former team is one of the surprises of this season. At the end of last season, they were still seventh in the constructors’ championship. With Vettel and Lance Stroll, the team did not even manage a top five result. It looks very different this season. The team is well ahead and is currently in second place in the constructors’ championship. Even before Ferrari and Mercedes.

The British racing team is clearly pleased with this development. Goals for the start of the season have been exceeded and are exceeding expectations, explained Aston Martin driver Alonso. “I’m very pleased that we made the move that we were hoping for,” said Chief Technology Officer Dan Fallows.

However, Fallows warns of intense competition that will increase performance in the upcoming races. “We have seen in the last races that they are incredibly strong competitors and that we have to give our best performance to be able to fight with them for the rest of the season,” he emphasized.

Especially compared to Red Bull, you still have to take a few steps to keep up with the front runners. “Looking at our relative’s progress with the fastest car, I think we can all agree that we still have a long way to go,” said the tech giant. “We have made great strides this year, but we still have a way to go,” he added. The car is still in development which will continue to evolve throughout the year.

Alonso dreams of winning the race

After a strong result in the first race, Alonso is now setting bigger goals. The Spaniard definitely wants to win another Formula 1 race this season. The car seems to be able to do that. Still, Fallows doesn’t think that’s entirely true. You need one day on a car-friendly route. “I would like to say that winning this season is possible,” says Fallows.

“But to be honest, we see the truth about our situation,” he adds. “Our goal is to maximize the performance we can get from the car in the shortest amount of time. And then we’ll see what the reward is.” So despite a good start to the season, Aston Martin is down.
