With the unveiling of the new, around 200 million euro factory, Aston Martin is also committed to its goal of driving for victories and titles in the future. Stroll estimates the World Cup maturity at “three to five years”. The new factory in Silverstone is therefore “a very significant investment, over 400,000 square meters. It shows my faith in the team, confirms my ambitions and my belief in Formula 1. It’s really an investment in Formula 1. “
The new location also includes a brand new wind tunnel. The old factory, which was built by Eddie Jordan in 1991, is being turned into a wellness center and cafeteria next door. It will also house the new state-of-the-art F1 simulator. The first construction phase, which was delayed by almost two years due to the corona virus pandemic, is expected to be finished in 18 months, the second in 36 months.
