Aston Martin is hinting a lot ahead of the presentation of the new AMR21

Aston Martin is hinting a lot ahead of the presentation of its new car. Aston Martin's return to Formula 1 is of course celebrated, and with British Racing Green, an iconic colour is also returning to F1.

At 15:00GMT, Aston Martin will present its first Formula 1 car since 1960. In 1959 and 1960, the unique British brand was also at the start of Formula 1, but for years the brand that is closely associated with the James Bond film series disappeared. In 2021, however, it will make its official return, after several years as title sponsor of Red Bull Racing.

Aston Martin presents new AMR21

Aston Martin will not develop its own engine in 2021 as it did the first time around in F1, but where Red Bull only had the name on the car, Racing Point has been completely renamed the Aston Martin F1 team. With a new name also comes a new livery, and that's a reference to the past.

Lance Stroll revealed back in 2020 that the new livery will largely be British Racing Green. The colour with which British racing is closely associated, and the colour in which the Aston Martin DBR4 and DBR5 from 1959 and 1960 were also dressed. It remains to be seen in what form BWT's pink will return to the car.
