The first test day is on February 23 so it would be kind of surprising if we were done by February 18. But maybe the teams will indeed be earlier than usual because of the big rule change.

Livery/showcar launch. It won’t be the real thing I’m sure

I expect this will be the case for most, if not all teams.

And in other news, they've announced Mike Krack (slightly unfortunate name) as the new TP - he is the ex-BMW motorsports boss.

To shamelessly pilfer something from the Racer comments section on the matter:

 

2021: This is your Aston Martin

2022: This is your Aston Martin on Krack

Just imagine if he'd joined Haas, instead...

Just watched a piece on "The Race" about Mike Krack. He seems to have quite the comprehensive resume and may well be just what Aston Martin needs. Best of luck to him.

Like or dislike Lawrence Stroll, but this is exactly the sort of stuff that makes for a successful businessperson. Man's got moxie, maybe even enough to make Aston Martin a WCC team in the near future.

Buying out contracts and hoping that a team of people that never worked with eachother blend together well? I consider such strategy as high risk management without any certainty of success and a devaluation of the existing people in your company now being flanked with "superstars" like Fallows.

I'd be keen to see them try and work with a lighter shade of green as the livery didn't translate to TV very well and often was hard to tell apart from the Mercs, having the same nose didn't help of course.

Props to Aston Martin for taking us seriously. Looking forward to the first actual 2022 car, even though I'm sure we won't see all angles properly until Barca.

Indeed-  I think they will brighten up, maybe closer to the Jag green of 2000-2004. 

 

Also Aramco has quite a bright green in its logo, so that will help too. I expect two tones of green with a flash of blue on their livery.

I do think the Haas is a real car, albeit without all the bells and whistles.

I believe it will come straight off the production line in lighter green - but not much....

Certainly not the most inspirational of speakers when he's squinting at the autocue.

Rachel asks him a question as if it's a normal conversation, Stroll turns around, shows his back to her and reads at a camera.  :lol:

Looks amazing got to say. A bit bulky/weird on sidepods, but all in all beautiful.

Livery is picture perfect.

Sidepods completely different philosophy compared to Haas.

Really love the cooling on the sidepods. Reminds me of the Ferrari F2003-GA.
