“This Aston Martin team clearly applies the energy and the commitment to win, and so they are one of the most exciting teams in Formula 1 today.

“I have known Lawrence and Lance for many years and it is obvious that they have the ambition and the passion to succeed in Formula 1.

“I’ve seen the team consistently attract great people with winning pedigrees, and realized the huge commitment to new facilities and resources at Silverstone.

“No one in Formula 1 today shows greater vision and absolute commitment to winning, and that makes for a really exciting opportunity for me.”

I still have the thirst and the ambition to fight to be at the front, and I want to be part of an organization that is committed to learning, growing and succeeding.
