We started this Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One ™ Team campaign together and I look forward to continuing the journey with him next time. year. We didn’t achieve what we planned to do this year, but that only heightened our thirst for success next season. Now, with the prestige and support of Aston Martin, and the brilliant new sponsor-partners that such a prestigious brand has attracted, we are well positioned to improve our performance in 2022.

We never underestimate our opposition, so we don’t intend to make too many promises, but we do know that Lance and Sebastian will make the most of the tools we put at their disposal.
