Stroll denies sales rumors
Sebastian Vettel’s new boss Lawrence Stroll denies rumors that Aston Martin will be sold to a Chinese automaker that is already collaborating with Daimler.
The deal would also affect the Aston Martin Formula 1 works team, because involvement in the premier class no longer makes sense if you want to focus on electric mobility.

Alone: Aston Martin denies the rumors decidedly. “Lawrence Stroll calls them bullshit and totally untrue,” says a spokesman for the Formula 1 works team at Pitpass.
Stroll currently holds around 25 percent of the shares in the sports car manufacturer Aston Martin with a group of investors and is also the owner of the Formula 1 team, in which Sebastian Vettel and his son Lance also drive.
The speaker: Stroll could “not be more enthusiastic” about the project and firmly believe in the “long-term success of the team”
The British luxury brand is back in the premier class this season after more than 60 years. “Motorsport has always been an important part of Aston Martin history, we are all proud to continue this legacy,” said Stroll recently.
