British luxury auto company Aston Martin is reportedly looking to be more involved in the Formula One.
The chief executive Andy Palmer opened up on this amid speculations that the company could pair up with Red Bull and possibly engine involvement.
Red Bull and Aston Martin have an involvement in place as the team’s race cars are branded with the marque since 2016. A designer for the racing company has also worked on the AM-RB 001 Valkyrie ‘hypercar.’ The designers Adrian Newey has been in charge of the Renault-powered race cars and won four straight drivers’ and constructors’ titles from 2010 to 2013.
There are rumours that Aston Martin could become the title sponsor for Red Bull in the next racing season. For now Palmer said at the Singapore Grand Prix:
“We want to be more involved in the sport. We’re currently studying the 2021 engine. If we get a reasonable regulation that brings down the cost of the engine, Aston would like to be involved in the engine.” (more…)
