Aston Martin F1 team has participated in Formula One in various forms dating as far back as 1959.

Today, the Aston Martin F1 team is back and racing in F1 as the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant F1 Team.

Aston Martin first participated in Formula One during the 1959 season. That year, the team debuted the DBR4 chassis using their own engine. However, they failed to score any points.  To make matters worse, the Aston Martin team continued to perform poorly all the way through the 1960 season – once again failing to score any points. As a result, the British car manufacturer decided to leave Formula One after 1960.

In 2021, the Aston Martin F1 team was rebranded as the Racing Point F1 Team and it became the official Aston Martin team. And this time, determined to win, they were using Mercedes power units and starting to get some traction.

Owned by Lawrence Stroll and headquartered in Silverstone, Great Britain, the team has Stroll and Fernando Alonso as their race drivers beginning with the 2023 season. 

This Aston Martin F1 team is primed for success. They’ve won as a team for the Jordan Grand Prix team and most recently as Racing Point in 2020. With drivers known for their ability to punch up – and now with a two-time champion leading their line-up – the Aston Martin team is being closely watched throughout the world of racing.

This low-key season sees the team retains seventh in the standings, with P6 their best race finish – for Sebastian Vettel in Azerbaijan and Japan, and Lance Stroll in Singapore. Vettel announces his F1 retirement, with fellow champion Fernando Alonso swiftly signed as his 2023 replacement.

The Aston Martin F1 team fails to keep pace with midfield rivals and drops to P7 in the standings, scoring less than half their 2020 points tally. Highlights are Sebastian Vettel’s podium in Azerbaijan plus fifth places at Spa and Monaco. The low point is his disqualification from P2 in Hungary for a fuel infringement.
