Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant F1 Team are aiming high this coming season, after they revealed the new livery for the 2023 season it’s clear the team are here to continue the momentum they found at the end of the previous season.

The AMR23 broke cover at the new Silverstone headquarters on Monday night, its first bold and aggressive design marking a step change from its predecessor last year.

Adapting to the new 2023 regulations the team have responded with multiple new significant design features, a design that suits the new fresh driver line-up and mirrors the new team mentality.

Kicking off the last week of car launches, the newly appointed Technical Director, Dan Fallows, said the AMR23 is 95% different from the AMR22 after the team had a difficult start to its campaign in which they had to change their concept and start from scratch early on. However, this doesn’t mean that the team allowed room for comprising when it came to forging its new concept.

The design includes a heavily revised front wing, new side pods that incorporate a much more aggressive sweeping inner ramp, and a different engine cover that includes a larger, more prominent roll hoop inlet.

Speaking about the challenges that the team endured in the development of the AMR23, Fallows said the team was ‘adamant that it wanted to tackle these [2023] regulations without compromise‘.

Fallows also said, “We want to move up the grid and start challenging the teams at the front and you can’t do that by sitting back and being conservative.

“AMR23 is a significant development of the car we refined in the latter half of 2022and we have improved it in every critical area. It optimises the solutions we felt would offer us the most performance, and it embodies the joint vision we have embraced and have built together over the recent months.

“Now we need to focus on delivering an ambitious yet efficient programme of updates for the first race and across the remainder of the season.” 

The AMR23 is due to hit the track in Silverstone this coming Wednesday, coinciding with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team 2023 livery launch, for a filming day with Lance Stroll sitting behind the wheel in the morning session, and Fernando Alonso following in the afternoon.
