Aston Martin using 2024 findings to upgrade 2023 F1 car
The FIA-imposed cost cap and Aerodynamic Testing Restrictions are pushing teams, like Aston Martin, to start early on the development of their new cars instead of relying on spending to solve issues. Aston Martin has lost 20% of its aero testing time due to its improved standings, which affects the development of its 2023 car. The team is still working hard on developing the 2023 car and plans to transfer the knowledge gained to improve the performance of this year’s car. Aston Martin brought new parts, including a revised floor and a rear winglet, to the Dutch GP and plans to continue developing throughout the season within the constraints of the cost cap. They still have more parts coming and hope to bring updates to the car until the end of the season.
