How Aston Martin has taken its ‘Green Mercedes’ to the next level for F1 2021

Aston Martin’s launch of its AMR21 was the most eagerly anticipated of pre-season, and the reveal didn’t disappoint.
Unlike so many other teams, what used to be Racing Point showed off plenty of detail and genuine new parts.
While the team claims the car is “100% Aston Martin” rather than just another copy of Mercedes, there are several clear examples of how it has continued to follow the lead of the best team on the grid, and it has also inherited one of the key performance gains the world champion team made last year.
Tell us your thoughts on Aston Martin's new look and 2021 chances in the comments below!

    This is the team to watch out for this year. Lets not forget they finished firmly 3rd this year, and they were robbed of it because of other teams being salty that they copied Mercedes (something literally everybody has done for 5+ years they just did it better). They didn't break a single rule with copying the ducts, it was not a part on the list when they implemented it, yet they got penalized for it. Completely absurd.

      Didnt think he could get worse than when he was teammates with Ricciardo. But Seb has shown some real skills at being a sht driver since then. Where as every other driver on the grid can drive multiple types of cars, Seb can only drive cars that suit his sytle of driving, and we are suposed to think he is a great driver because if that limitation?

    The search for aerodynamic efficiencies has left the team offerings festooned with elaborate and obscure visual clutter. The extreme wheelbase and resulting unhappy relationship with wheel diameter makes these "cars" seem similar to giant skateboards. I have watched F1 for more than 50 years. For most of that time, F1 cars were visually attractive, if in a predatory sort of way. I understand visual aesthetics aren't the reason for these things looking as they do but they are attenuated, baroque and ugly now. This thing has proportional echoes of a CanAm Maverick 4 door UTV. Physics is a cruel mistress... Best wishes to the drivers and to the team and I look forward to seeing this car at the front of the pack.

    How much longer will last in its present form ? The failure of leadership since 2011 has lead to a nose dive for this sport who has to compete with the finite sponsorship purse world wide. It been unable to attract two further teams on the grid due to capital barriers,media contract handcuffs for sponsors who have simply walked away from teram sponsorship to other sports. Whilst the smaller teams have been unable to compete as the sponsorship monies comming in have not been ditributed uniformly. We are comming to another crunch point when the combustion engine must be replaced by other technologies to meet climate change.The sport finds itself with no chair when the music stops. The latest vacum of leadership has let radical left wing political groups start the corrosive process of exclusion of sponsors, countries, and Brands from been associated with the sport. It is unclear whether Steffio Deminicarli apealsment stile will help this decline. Already he has taken his eye off the ball for the EU legal requirement to introduced quotas for all teams of 5% of severely disabled to be employed at senior level in all teams and suppliers this year and publish in the consolidated balance sheet on how this is going to be acheived in the next twelve months. The European/UK courts could fine promoters of the sport for not complying with this primary legislative requirement which could cancel some races in the European area. The retirement of Frank Williams and Robert Kubica with semmingly no replace of severely disabled replacement candidates has put on the red light to law enforcers and lobby groups. The courts have already warned that the sport must comply with disabled inclusion or risk procecution as they have had ten years to substantially change the sport to comply with the primary legislation. It is pointed out that the blind and severely disabled are the only legally recognised in primary legislation for quotas to be imposed on F1. This is distinct from political lobby groups or lower legislative boddies. How will Steffino and press license holders comply with this primary legislation in the next twelve months after ten years of inaction and deniel?

    Personally I would have kept Perez and got rid of Stroll, as Stroll has no consistency in his driving and is mediocre at best. Meanwhile it will be interesting to see how many times Vettel can mess it up this season, as I suspect he will do, but at least for him this year his team mate will not be the better driver.
