Although the results were below expectations, the Canadian driver of the team, Lance Stroll, feels that Aston Martin was able to prove itself in 2022, and that it has improved a lot, as in previous years it would not have recovered as quickly as before. Public.
They embarked on the 2022 season, which will bring a serious renewal, with high hopes, and accordingly, the Aston Martin F1 team’s staff had a great disappointment in the first half of the year: the constant target of the front of the main field remained without points in the first three races. The cause of the illness (floorboard problems) was found quickly, and they were even able to quickly remedy the problem.
The team started the sixth race of the weekend with an already modified car, which was constantly improving: they scored points with it twelve times, and at the end of the season they managed to compete more than once with the best in the middle.
The stable’s Canadian competitor, Lance Stroll, stated regarding the quick recognition and remedy of the problem, that all this is a good example of how much the stable has evolved since it changed from Racing Point to Aston Martin, because a few years ago this would have been unthinkable. “I think the team has improved a lotStroll Motorsports said.
“A few years ago we would have been in a more difficult position if we had tried to dig ourselves out of the hole we were in at the beginning of the year. But there have been serious changes. We took a brand new car to Barcelona and have been able to improve even more from there.” It is to explain.
“Over time we’ve found ourselves in a much better position in some races than we were before (at the start of the year). I don’t think we could have done that a couple of years ago, so I think we’ve made tremendous progress in that regard. We were more united as a team than before. Before. When I look at the factory, the work ethic, the communication, the way we worked, I think it’s clear we’ve improved a lot compared to where we were at Racing Point.” highlighted.
“During the season we became more competitive, fighting for the points and Q3 in many races. At the beginning of the year, we weren’t even close. From this point of view, this is definitely a positive development. But still, there were odd races. Maybe. We were fourth fastest in Austin, then in Texas we fell behind, then in Brazil we were somewhere in the middle. There are still weekends when we don’t know why we can’t be as competitive as we used to. We have ideas, but we’re not sure.He indicated that there was still a problem.
“I think that should be the goal for the near future: to be more competitive on different types of tracks. But when I look at where we started at the beginning of the year, I think we’ve taken a big step in the right direction.“- concluded Stroll, who will have a new teammate in 2023, in the person of two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, whose routine can also help the team a lot in development.
