Aston Martin is clearly working towards the top of Formula 1. The current designer of the Alfa Romeo car is 'the first of many new names' to join the Silverstone team, it is reported.

''It is very exciting to join Aston Martin as Engineering Director.

''As we continue to add weight to our technical team, we are hugely excited that Luca Furbatto has chosen to join Aston Martin. Working with our existing Engineering Group, he will bring a valuable perspective and knowledge to help shape our approach in the short and medium term. 'This appointment coincides with Andrew Green stepping up to a new role where he will take a global perspective on the company’s mid to long-term technical strategy,'' said Otmar Szafnauer.

He brings a vast amount of experience with him built up from more than two decades in the sport spent at several leading Formula One teams. This is the first of many key appointments we are making in line with our ambition to establish Aston Martin at the front of the grid,'' concludes Andrew Green.
