E.t was a Formula 1 outing with a historic character: 61 years after Roy Salvadori and Maurice Trintignant last drove an Aston Martin DBR5 at the 1960 British Grand Prix on the Silverstone circuit, Sebastian Vettel (33) and Lance Stroll ( 22) on.

Both spurred the brand new AMR21 on demo tires from Pirelli. 100 kilometers were allowed on the rainy track according to the test regulations.

But in this case, the color of Sebastian Vettel’s helmet was much more interesting than the green racer. Because if you look closely, you can see: The head protection is pink! Also recognizable: the BWT logo.

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.

It can also be assumed that the Germans and Austrians also want to set standards together with regard to environmental protection and sustainability.
