Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Would imagine the chassis to be the RP20 seeing as last year we had the RP19...

Can we talk about how Racing Point is set to be the Aston Martin works team in 2021? Or is this only for 2020 talk?

Why should that not be discussed here? Stroll owns the Racing Point F1 team and he has done yesterday evening something very important for the team. This can be discussed here, I would not know why not.

Well I hardly comment because when I do people get a stick up their ass over things like. Grammar or place time location of what the pertinent information is even relevant.

Just answering his question in regards on why it wasn’t commented on this particular thread... The Aston Martin investment by Stroll and the impact it could have on the Formula 1 team is discussed somewhere else... The link to that thread was also posted to make it easier for whomever wants to have that discussion to get there.

It isn’t about “sticks up anyone’s ass”, it’s just trying to maintain certain order and not derail discussions and bringing them off-topic... Which it’s actually the appeal of this forum for most that want to contribute / debate here.

Hopefully we will get back on topic.

When Leclerc and Verstappen signed a new contract for the coming years, what has an effect on 2021 and further, it was also discussed in the 2019 topics, multiple pages. Nobody said that was not allowed. Why should it not be allowed here,
in this case Stroll/Aston Martin contract, what he has signed on January 30, 2020?

Ferrari, nuovo contratto per Leclerc
rinnovo di 5 anni per blindarlo
Il monegasco riceverà anche un importante adeguamento dello stipendio
(si parla di 9 milioni l’anno, a salire, più del triplo rispetto a prima).

Interview with Otmar Szafnauer

Otmar, some incredibly significant news recently with the team set to become Aston Martin F1 Team in 2021…

“It’s significant news for Aston Martin and for Formula 1 itself. As one of the most iconic sports car brands in the world, Aston Martin needed a presence on the F1 grid and this solution delivers a fully-fledged works Aston Martin F1 Team from 2021 onwards. It’s news that will excite fans around the world and will shine a spotlight on a brand that is widely regarded as Britain’s finest luxury sports car manufacturer.”

What further details can you share about the F1 programme?

“Creating a works F1 team achieves a number of objectives for Aston Martin. It delivers a high-profile marketing platform for the road car division, which will enhance commercial appeal in all areas of the business. There is also the obvious technical collaboration between the F1 programme and the road cars, with F1 technology filtering through to the products Aston Martin launches in the years ahead. This is particularly relevant to the mid-engine philosophy that is just around the corner. The competitive environment of racing is a rich avenue for innovation and the opportunity for technology cross-over is incredibly exciting.”

What has been the reaction to the news in the Silverstone factory?

“It’s certainly provides a real injection of energy for the 465 loyal and hard-working staff in Silverstone. The team has been in business, under various names, for 30 years and is more than ready to become a manufacturer team. Lawrence [Stroll] spoke to the staff last week and set out the clear objective to establish Aston Martin as one of the top teams in the sport. Everyone is proud to represent a legendary car manufacturer returning to the pinnacle of motorsport.”

What does it mean for the 2020 season?

“There’s no immediate impact on our current campaign and we will continue to compete as Racing Point until the rebrand takes place at the start of the 2021 season. From then we will be known simply as ‘Aston Martin F1 Team’ - so the Racing Point name will disappear. It’s exciting to transition into a manufacturer team and we’ve got the best part of a year to make all those changes – much of which will be happening behind-the-scenes. It’s important we don’t take our eyes off the main task for 2020, which is to be competitive on the racetrack with the RP20.”
