Fernando Alonso said that the performance of the Aston Martin team at the qualifying in Bahrain was incredible, and that eight months ago, no one could have even imagined something like this. The Spaniard, who will take part in the first race with the Aston Martin team today, finished qualifying in fifth place, while his teammate Lance Stroll, who broke both wrists 12 days before, finished eighth.

"This is just the beginning of this project, so we have a good basis to develop in the next weeks and races. To start the first race from fifth place is incredible. We are enjoying every moment, every training session. It seems almost too good to be true, but the qualifications are behind us and we are still among the best
At the end of the winter testing in Bahrain, there were rumors that the recently retired four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel could replace the injured Lanca Stroll in the Aston Martin team. Just a few days before the start of testing in Bahrain, news broke from the Aston Martin team that Lance Stroll had been injured while cycling, and that he would have to miss all three days of testing. It later became clear that the injuries were more serious and would likely rule the Canadian out of next weekend's opening F1 race, with speculation soon after that Vettel could take his place. The rumors got a fresh boost when team boss Mike Krack said he had contacted the German and that this was a possibility, and now the team has announced that he will
Lance Strol suffered a crash during training with his bike before the start of F1's winter testing in Bahrain, in which he suffered fractures to both wrists. The driver of the Aston Martin team is said to have already undergone an operation on one of his broken wrists in Barcelona, and he was operated on by Dr. Xavier Mir, the surgeon who also operated on MotoGP star Marc Marquez after breaking his right arm in Jerez 2020. The team is very tight-lipped about Lanca Stroll's condition, so it is not entirely clear whether the rider will be ready for the first race of the season, or he will be replaced there by one of the reserve racers. Stroll is being replaced by Felipe Drugovich at the tests, and Stoffel Vandoorne is in a hurry in Cape Town, so it is unlikely that the latter would jump into the race, where he would meet his former teammate again as a teammate

Lance Stroll says the Aston Martin car would be two seconds per lap faster if they copied the Red Bull RB18 car. Aston Martin has attracted attention with innovations ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, which makes the AMR22 strongly reminiscent of Red Bull. The FIA has examined the form and ruled that it is not a disputed copy, although Red Bull insists it even has evidence that some employees who transferred from Milton Keynes to Aston Martin downloaded some data from the servers. But although the car looks like the RB18 at first glance, it is certainly not as fast on the track, as Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel won 18th and 16th place in the qualifiers, and Red Bull racers start the race from second and fifth. Stroll believes this is in itself proof that the Aston Ma

If this is the case, nothing good will happen to the team. "However, Ralf also criticized his
