Fernando Alonso: “Given the passion and the desire to win, Aston Martin – one of the most promising teams of modern Formula 1. I’ve known Lawrence and Lance for years, I can see their ambition and focus on success. I’ve seen how the team has systematically attracted the best professionals with experience of winning, I know about the serious investment in the construction of new facilities at the base in Silverstone. No one in Formula 1 today demonstrates a deeper vision and an absolute desire to win, which is very appealing to me.
I still want to win, to fight with the best. I want to be part of a team that strives to learn, develop and succeed. We understand that there is a lot to do and that we have to do our best to get results. The passion and desire to perform that I witnessed convinces me that I will continue to enjoy and dedicate myself to the sport. I intend to win again, and I have to take the opportunities that feel right to me.”
Lawrence Stroll, CEO: “I’ve known and admired Fernando for years, it’s always been clear that he’s just as focused on winning as I am. I set myself a goal: to gather the best people and provide them with the necessary resources and an efficient organization to succeed in this very competitive sport. And now these plans are taking shape at the base in Silverstone.
It seemed natural to me to invite Fernando to participate in the creation of a winning team. During our recent conversations, we confirmed that we share the same ambition and values, and it was logical and easy to confirm our desire to work together.
Mike Crack, Team Principal: “I’ve seen how excited our engineers and the whole team are about the opportunity to work with Fernando. Almost everyone can learn something from a man of Fernando’s caliber and experience. We are confident he will inspire everyone to new achievements, reinforcing the already powerful energy that exists within the team.
We’re on our way to creating a team that can win. It’s clear that Fernando will accelerate our progress and lead to results we can be proud of.
We’re excited to have Fernando and Lance as our drivers next year – it’s an incredibly strong combination of experience and youth. Both drivers are looking forward to working together.
