The new car will be unveiled ten days before the official three-day Formula 1 test, which serves as the only on-track preparation for teams before the season begins. 

Testing for F1 will take place in Bahrain from Thursday, February 23rd, to Saturday, February 25th, with the Bahrain GP taking place the following weekend on Sunday, March 5th.

Following his departure from Red Bull, Aston Martin’s technical director Dan Fallows confirmed that he has been in charge of AMR23’s development since its inception.

He has also been impressed by what he has seen during his time with the team thus far; Aston Martin employees will move into their brand-new factory building in the middle of 2023, and the team will open its in-house wind tunnel in 2024.

Following a tour of the new Aston Martin factory, Fallows described Aston Martin’s engineering team as a “hugely passionate” and “very talented group of people.” He added that some Aston Martin engineers have been in F1 for a very long time and have tremendous experience.

Fallows added that the main thing for the British team is to ensure proper utilization of experience and passion while simultaneously trying to develop the team into a race-winning outfit.
