Formula 1 News: Aston Martin windtunnel model is entirely different from real car

Formula 1 News: Aston Martin is working on an updated version of its windtunnel AMR22 model, says performance director Tom McCullough 

Formula 1 News: Aston Martin was the first team to exhibit an actual Formula 1 2022 car. And, put it through its paces at a filming day at Silverstone. Andrew Green, the team’s chief technical officer, stated at the time that, having launched so early, the team was ready to study ideas from other new cars, and that the AMR22 would be subject to quick development during the season.

As the team reacts to the lessons learned since the start of testing in Barcelona, that process is already well underway.

He said that the car is not exactly how it seems right now. As the season progresses, the car will be optimized. And, everyone will see a strong point that was not noticed before. And, then the data will be revisited. So, they have simply decided to have some freedom and not be completely tied to one philosophy. And, in that scenario, they are open to “converging.” It’s a very exciting period.

Moreover, the team had no idea that its PU partner Mercedes was working on the sidepod and cooling concept. It was debuted on the W13 in Bahrain, according to McCullough.

Aston Martin buys Mercedes engines, gearboxes, and rear suspension. But, according to McCullough, there were no indicators in the packaging of the shared pieces as to which way its partner team was going. McCullough added they had no idea what was going to happen. And, they don’t share any information like that. 

So, the cooling side of the radiator package has nothing to do with their knowledge. The day before, he started seeing it on social media, and a lot of people were talking about it. That was the first time he had heard of it.

He believes the primary different point with the Mercedes packaging is of the radiators that feed into the heat exchangers. He said it’s fascinating to see everyone’s interpretation of sidepod design up and down the pit lane.

The Aston Martin AMR22, on the other hand, features more typical sidepods. However, as the team develops its car, McCullough admits that the team is open to exploring other options. They also have certain update pieces that they’re investigating, as well as a variety of other solutions.

There’s always a chance of convergence. However, Mercedes, on the other hand, is clearly distinct, he stated. And, the aero design folks are making decisions based on the solutions they have now. And also, on what they plan to do in the future, he added.

These were the six most difficult days of testing he ever had. From having to grasp what he was doing and reacting to it while still attempting to complete all of the primary test things, he explained how it was not at all easy. He added, he’s fairly pleased that they’ve completed all of the major test items that they needed to complete, and the car is reacting and behaving as they want it to.
