Aston Martin is set to unveil their highly anticipated 2024 Formula One Car at their cutting-edge facility in Silverstone on Monday, February 12.
The much-awaited AMR24 challenger will make its debut at Silverstone on the 12th of February. The announcement of this date initially came through an email sent to members of the team’s I / AM fan campaign. Additionally, fans have been offered a chance to participate in a competition for an exclusive invitation to witness the unveiling.
Aston Martin joins the ranks of teams unveiling their 2024 models, with Sauber and Williams scheduled for February 5, followed by Ferrari’s revelation on February 13.
Two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso has expressed his expectations for the upcoming AMR24. He emphasizes the necessity for improved consistency, citing the previous car’s operational limitations within a narrow performance window. Alonso also highlights the imperative need to enhance straight-line speed, a noted weakness in their previous model.
The AMR24’s launch of 2024 Formula One Car will witness the presence of two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, alongside his teammate Lance Stroll, son of team owner Lawrence Stroll.
This unveiling precedes Ferrari’s launch by a day and follows Williams’ and Sauber’s (now Stake Formula One Team) reveals by a week.
Despite a promising start in the previous season, Aston Martin slid down to fifth place in the constructors’ championship. Fernando Alonso, who transitioned to Aston from Alpine last season, showcased an impressive performance, securing six podium finishes in the initial eight races of 2023. He narrowly missed securing his first victory in a decade at Monaco in May.
Though competitors like Mercedes, Ferrari, and McLaren caught up with Aston Martin later in the season, Alonso clinched a commendable fourth place in the drivers’ standings, trailing only Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez, and Lewis Hamilton.
Alonso’s notable eight podium finishes throughout the 22-race season propelled his ambition for a 33rd race win, marking his 21st season in Formula 1.
In contrast, Lance Stroll faced a more challenging 2023 campaign, failing to secure a podium finish and managing a best of fourth place at the Australian Grand Prix, finishing 10th overall.
The 2023 season kicks off with the Bahrain Grand Prix on Saturday, March 2, where Alonso clinched a memorable third-place finish at the previous year’s season opener.
The AM24, Aston Martin’s 2024 Formula One car, is a development that has garnered much anticipation in the Formula 1 community. The team has announced that the car’s unveiling will take place on February 12, 2024, a fortnight prior to the pre-season testing.
The team, based in Silverstone, has been concentrating on enhancing the car’s aerodynamic efficiency. Insights gained from the 2024 car’s development have also been applied to improve their 2023 model. This long-term development strategy underscores Aston Martin’s dedication to elevating their performance in Formula 1.
The introduction of the Aston Martin Formula One Car, AM24 is keenly awaited by both fans and rivals, signifying a notable landmark in Aston Martin’s Formula 1 journey.
