Aston Martin principal Otmar Szafnauer revealed that the team are in the process of expanding their workforce from 535 to roughly 800.
Aston Martin returned to the Formula 1 grid for 2021, brought about by Lawrence Stroll, part owner of Aston Martin Lagonda.
Previously the team had been known as Racing Point under Stroll’s ownership, but it is a Formula 1 outfit with a history that stretches back far further.
Prior to Stroll’s arrival it was called Force India, with Spyker, Midland and Jordan all previous incarnations.
In particular as Force India, this was a team which became known for springing upsets on a much more modest Formula 1 budget than those consistently at the top, though ultimately the funding did dry up.
