Aston Martin Confirms Livery Change Is Being Considered

  • Gepubliceerd op 22 dagen geleden

    Formula World

    The pink livery sported by Racing Point from the last couple of seasons was among the most unique car liveries in F1. However, this year, the team got rebranded as Aston Martin and they reverted back to the British Green traditionally associated with the brand. Andreas Weissenbacher, BWT’s CEO had recently stated that the current car doesn’t pop as much as it used to when it was pink. Aston Martin team principal Otmar Szafnauer has now explained what they plan to do to make their car more prominent on television while speaking to the media in Austria

    I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:

    Aston Martin To Go Pink?

    Szafnauer began by explaining the positives of the current green livery

    “I think the green colour suits us, that's for sure. I think it's a stunning colour in the sun and when you're looking at it in person”

    He, however, understands the need to make it stand out more on television

    “But I believe we should be looking at making it pop a little more on television, without losing the green when you're looking at it outside”

    He is, however, unsure about how to achieve that

    “I don't know if we can do that but that's one thing that we're looking to do, just to make sure that it differentiates itself on TV from some of the other darker cars”

    He was then asked if the team will revert to its pink livery to stand out. Otmar signed off by responding to that

    “With a name like Aston Martin and Aston being green traditionally - and we're growing the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team - I would think it will stay green. Ferrari is red Aston will be green”

    McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo “In the beginning, always said: I don't want to have a simulator at home, because I have something better to do in the free weekends”

    “These virtual races have never excited [him]. But [he doesn't] want to be narrow-minded here either. Maybe it really is a help. That would be something to find out”, he added

    He further pointed out that “Max [Verstappen], Lando [Norris], and Charles [Leclerc] are very active in that, and maybe that will help. It's still not [his] thing, but [he’s] not going to ignore it but [he'll] give it a try”

    McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl feels that “there’s no point to see things that aren’t there. You need to be realistic”

    He further elaborated that they “know exactly where [they] stand as a team, [they] know what the deficit is”

    They “knew that [they] would have a better car [in Austria] compared to [the first] weekend, but [they] couldn’t expect that [they] could actually fight [Mercedes and Red Bull] like that”

    “At the same time, [they] don’t know which problems they experienced: especially Mercedes”, Seidl cautioned

    Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas has stated that “if that wasn't the case that [he] would continue with Mercedes then, of course, [he] would look at other options”

    “But it is not something [he needs] to think about now. [He] also [has] a good management team and they haven't told [him] anything yet”

    “The time will be right soon. [He doesn't] know yet which day, which week but [he thinks] soon. [They] have to look at all the options and the situation as a whole”, Bottas confirmed

    Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton doesn’t have “particularly [high hopes for the sprint qualifying]”

    He feels that it will “just be a train probably. Hopefully there’ll be some overtaking but most likely won’t be too exciting”

    Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz added to that by suggesting that “17 laps on a set of tyres should allow [them] to push a bit more, have a bit of fun”

    “But the more we push, it can be tricky to overtake, it is not a secret so we will see how it pans out”, Sainz added

    Haas team principal Guenther Steiner is of the opinion that they “need to try to not have triple headers. More double-headers are better than one triple-header”

    He also expects that the Russia-Turkey-Japan triple-header “will be a lot tougher because you have got the time zone changes in as well and, obviously, the jet lag which goes with it”

    Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto thinks that “it has only been [the last] two weekends where in terms of strategy [they] made improper choices, [they] have been dispassionate somehow”

    “Now from here onward there is still room for improvement and that is where [their] focus is with the team and the drivers”


    Do you think racing simulator games have any beneficial effects in real F1 racing?

It's too much monochromatic, it used to work with pink because it's pops out more but with a softer color like the dark green they are using now it's not the same.

I am certainly not a racer, but playing with the race simulator gave me great understanding of each circuit and its curves. I know that there is a lot more than circuits and curves to deal with in the real world, but that also matters, and is one less thing to busy your mind with. Things such as accelerating out of a curve, braking point limits VS speed, etc. can be experimented on a simulator without destrying your real life car.

How much must it cost for a team to switch? Re-spraying/covering the cars, then we have all those uniforms, then the redesigned merch for fans, re-decorating the little office/race home eah team builds, then the lorries that carries everything, then all the drill guns, and stop signs, pens, pencils, writing paper - everything. That shit can't be cheap.

I'd love if the livery would go from this year's British Racing Green on top to Lime Green of WEC down the bottom. Doesn't have to be one constant colour all over and that would make the car stand out. Lose the pink stripe as well. And they should use it in WEC too. And on the road cars.

Here's a theory. These young guys have build part of their social life online, and were therefor not hit so hard by lock-downs. I think Daniel is one of those people who really suffers from not seeing his family and friends face-to-face. A sim at home will not solve that.
