Krack certain Alonso will "accelerate Aston Martin's progress" in F1

Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack believes signing Fernando Alonso will "accelerate" Aston Martin's journey to the top of the Formula 1 World Championship. The 41-year-old has signed for Aston Martin on a multi-year deal. 

Aiming for the top

Four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel announced his departure from F1 last week and Aston Martin have found another World Champion to replace the German. Aston Martin are desperate to return to the top of Formula 1, but they are far behind Red Bull and Ferrari in 2022. Boss Krack is confident they'll make it and be helped by Alonso. 

"We are on a journey to create a winning organisation, and it is clear that Fernando will accelerate our progress and bring us to a performance in which we can take pride. We are delighted to have Fernando and Lance as our driver line-up next year - the combination of experience and youth will be incredibly strong and both drivers look forward to competing and working together," he said. 

"The team has a new leadership focused on the development of AMR23, and we are all thrilled that they and our future projects will benefit from the knowledge and experience that Fernando will bring."
