Silverstone (AP) - With his first Aston Martin in the classic British Racing Green and with Mercedes power under the cover, Sebastian Vettel wants to make a Formula 1 restart.

On March 3rd, the four-time world champion and his teammate Lance Stroll revealed the secret of the AMR21.

"It's a new chapter for me too," announced Vettel, who had to leave Ferrari, at the online presentation.

"Winning is very ambitious, but we are here to win."

The car was initially covered with a huge British flag before newcomer Vettel and team owner son Lance presented their new company car to the public for the first time.

“This is a great moment for our Formula 1 team,” said team boss Otmar Szafnauer.


Last year the team drove under the name Racing Point before Aston Martin returned to the premier class after 61 years.

“It's just the beginning.

Our ambition is unlimited, "said racing team owner Lawrence Stroll:" Today it's about dreams, about showing that everything can come true.

The team has already received congratulations for the new car from none other than football megastar Tom Brady.

"It looks incredible - and fast," he sent a video message.

And James Bond actor Daniel Craig insisted on wishing the team good luck: "This is a thrill for all Formula 1 fans."
