The water technology company was the main sponsor of Aston Martin’s predecessor team, Racing Point, until the end of 2020. However, the Austrians are less noticeably represented on the new green racing car. The company, which is heavily involved in motorsport, normally insists on a paint job completely in pink. It was only a week before yesterday’s presentation that an agreement was reached on the reduced presence.

According to information from ABMS, the plan for a personal sponsorship of the Vettel helmet already existed at that time, which is now apparently being implemented. Also means: The white design with the Germany flag, which the Heppenheimer drove during his Ferrari era, is a thing of the past. A new era for Vettel’s head protection begins at Aston Martin. And the opponents will see BWT pink instead of Ferrari red in the future.
