Formula 1: Aston Martin Stroll denies sales rumors

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.

Gs Sebastian Vettel (33) has only just made his inaugural visit to the Aston Martin Formula 1 team – is the British sports car manufacturer supposed to be sold again?
At least that’s what a Chinese website reports. Accordingly, the Chinese group BYD Aston Martin wants to take over £ 4.1 billion (around 4.65 billion euros). BYD (Build your Dreams) is already working in China as part of a joint venture with Aston Martin shareholder Daimler, aiming to conquer the luxury electric car market in Europe.

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.

Stroll uses Formula 1 as a marketing platform

Formula 1 is the “arena in which many of the largest brands and car manufacturers have competed and celebrated successes. For everyone involved, it is an exciting challenge as we try to bring this legendary British brand under these names.” It’s simple: this is where Aston Martin belongs. “
