Aston Martin is focused on what it wants to achieve in its third season as an F1 brand, following a disappointing 2022 season. Aston Martin’s team principal, Mike Krack, said that they will have to outperform other teams throughout the developing period.
This is due to the team’s lack of competitiveness in the previous season. Krack believes that if they progress at the same rate as other teams, they will remain in the same position in the standings. As a result, Aston Martin will have to make a lot of quick progress, according to MotorsportTotal.com.
“We’d like to be there as quickly as possible. It’s extremely easy to speak about it and decide if we’ll do this or that. However, Formula One is not that predictable. It’s all relative. With all of the progress we’re making, if all of the teams continue to make that development, we’ll remain where we were.”
Following rebranding from Racing Point after the 2020 season, Aston Martin entered their second F1 season in 2022.
Although they had a successful year in 2021, finishing seventh in the standings, the new restrictions for the 2022 season were not kind to them. They were barely competitive with their competitors on the grid, scoring only 55 points. This, however, did not affect their P7 ranking.
The squad cannot ‘afford a disastrous start,’ according to Aston Martin’s boss
Mike Krack is determined to move Aston Martin up the midfield following a disappointing 2022 season. He remarked that a great start to the next season is critical for the club.
With the spending cap in place (for which the team was punished for a minor violation in the 2021 season). Krack feels the team will not be able to afford a disastrous start.

That was his explanation for their previous season’s finish, but the ambitions and expectations are considerably greater now:
“We must outperform the competition. Aston Martin started low in 2022, and it was difficult to go up midway. We want to start 2023 on a stronger footing since a terrible start is unaffordable given the fiscal constraints.”
Aston Martin is looking to achieve a lot more in the forthcoming season with Fernando Alonso filling the vacant spot left by Sebastian Vettel’s retirement.
Aston Martin is hoping that with the Spaniard’s expertise in the sport. The future seasons would be a turning point for them.
