Aston Martin does not shy away from admitting that they have indeed been thoroughly examining detailed photographs of Red Bull’s dominant 2023 car’s underside.
Following a strong start to the 2023 season, the Silverstone-based team has evidently relinquished its position as Red Bull’s closest rival.
As reported by Spanish sports daily Marca, Aston Martin is responding with determination, preparing to roll out another significant update package for the upcoming races at either Zandvoort or Monza.
According to reports, the update will encompass modifications to the sidepods, DRS, and floor.
Numerous experts strongly believe that Red Bull’s floor is the key to their unmatched performance. The images of Sergio Perez’s car being lifted by a crane in Monaco revealed the floor’s highly intricate design.
Teams were once again granted a good look at Perez’s car last weekend in Hungary when it was lifted again after the crash for removal from the circuit.
When inquired about Aston Martin’s review of those images, the team’s technical boss, Tom McCullough, openly informed Mundo Deportivo, “We always meticulously analyze any photo, seeking to comprehend how we can further develop.”
Regarding the timeframe for implementing their findings, McCullough clarified, “It’s an ongoing evolution. What we work on this year will serve as a foundation for next year. As for elements like the floor, we have more advancements in progress for this year, just as other teams do.”
