'Aston Martin comes with a completely new car for the Spain GP'

Aston Martin is working, according to Auto, Motor und Sport on a completely new car for the Spanish Grand Prix. The AMR22 will be pushed aside and there will be a B-version of the British racing car.

For Aston Martin, the 2022 Formula 1 season has not yet gone as was hoped beforehand. The team only scored six points and is ninth in the constructors' standings. The car is barely drivable for Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel due to problems with the porpoising.

According to AMuS, Andrew Green is sure that there is more in it than just a spot in midfield. Therefore, the team is working on a new AMR22. The aim is to introduce the new B-version of the car in Barcelona, but delivery problems could mean that there might only be one B-version on the grid and one old AMR22 in Spain.

For the British team, the Miami GP was also one to forget quickly. Stroll scored one more point, but both cars had to start from the pits because the fuel was too cold. The fuel (after a change in the rules) had to be eighteen degrees in Miami, but at Aston Martin, this was not properly communicated internally. As a result, the old standard of ten degrees was maintained and the team had to run the engines of Stroll and Vettel in the pits to raise the temperature in time for the start of the race.
