2023 Aston Martin F1 car revealed with new badge

New Formula One car celebrates 110 years of Aston Martin alongside a brand-new campus

Aston Martin has unveiled its entrant for the 2023 Formula One season. Called the AMR23, it features numerous revisions over last year’s car - which finished seventh overall in the Constructors’ Championship. 

The biggest change for the Aston Martin F1 team will come in the shape of two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso joining its ranks, replacing the retired four-time World Champion Sebastien Vettel. Lance Stroll is retained for his seventh year in F1. 

Compared to last year’s car, which had to comply with the wide-ranging technical changes for the 2022 season, this new car has a relatively modest update. Aston Martin says “there is only a subtle refinement of the regulations for this year, with a few small adjustments focused on ensuring compliance and improving safety”.

The 2023 car incorporates a 15mm higher floor limit to protect against the ‘porpoising’ effect so many teams struggled with last year. There are also larger rear-view mirrors. The most obvious changes are the redesigned front wing, sidepods and engine cover for improved aerodynamic efficiency.

With the debut of its new F1 car, Aston Martin has also revealed the latest on its new Formula One campus. It’s a completely new factory based at Silverstone incorporating a wind tunnel, simulator and exhibition space - all of which will be completed by the end of 2024. 

Fernando Alonso spoke about the new car and facility, “I have always said that I could see the ambition that shines bright at AMF1. And, as we launch the car in this brand-new factory, I think everyone can now see the scale of the ambition and determination at the heart of this organisation.  

“Just as important is the car – and the AMR23 looks incredibly neatly packaged and highly efficient. I was pleasantly surprised when I sampled last year’s car for the very first time, and I think there is plenty of performance we can unlock together. I can’t wait to get started.”

Aston Martin says this year’s Silverstone Grand Prix will be a “special celebration of the British manufacturer’s past, present and future”. As a nod to its history, the F1 car will wear a redesigned logo with a ‘110 Iconic Years’ crest.
