Rumours in the Alpine thread that BWT are possibly moving to the Enstone team.

Whilst it's never good to lose a sponsor, at least it means we can drop the pink and regain the yellow/bright green!!
It will be one heck of a livery especially with these new regulations.
Wonder if they are dropping Vettel as well, could this be the return to his German flag? of will he go for a rainbow?

So what's the difference between Technical Director and Chief Technical Officer(Andy Green)?

EDIT: Never mind, looks like Green is over the Performance Director, Engineering Director, and Technical Director.
That's pretty funny, from 1.5 years to less than 4 months.

That's Lawrence's expertise - Making Deals.
It will benefit AM big time to get the technical direction early in the season.

By the time Fallows get settled in and up to speed after starting in April he'll not have much input on the 2022 car. Give him a month to come up to speed (and I think that's very short time). You're in May, there is already 2 months of pipe line, puts you out to July.

November 2021 would have already been late for the 2022 season.

Yeah, Fallows real impact won’t be felt until next season. This season it will just be the building blocks. He will still be looking at developing a stronger team under him and everything. ‘23-24 will show the real potential of his involvement.

I think this is good enough confirmation that the reports aren't true

The rumor makes little sense to begin with.

There was quite a huge time prior. The first drafts are from 2019, or even before that if I'm correct. So sans 2020(of which they had a few months as well) they had the majority of 2021, part of 2020 and part of 2019 to work on the car.

The likelyhood that a team would not make these first tests is already quite small, considering the significance. The chance that a well-funded team that dropped 2021 quite early on would not make it in time is close to none.

Now, if they don't have all the final parts on, that is quite likely for every team.

There have been no reports of failed crash tests or other turmoil in the team. There is literally nothing to suggest that this rumor would be true.

Aston Martin have stated on social media that the rumors of being behind the curve are just that, rumors. They stated work is going well and the car will be ready for testing.

Is it me? Or does anyone else think that Martin whitemarsh for the position
He holds as a group driector was a too prominent in Sebastian Vettel's seat fitting video?

I thought it was very close to the racing day to day stuff. Martin could vey well be Otmar's replacement!
