Aston, Ferrari, Mercedes to Unveil New Cars
Just under a week after the presentation of the new Alpine car, Aston Martin will present its new vehicle. Last season, expectations were not very high, even though Fernando Alonso joined the team in Silverstone. Despite this, Aston Martin proved otherwise. The team, which finished seventh in the championship in 2022, suddenly found itself competing for podium places. Aston Martin aims to make a similar leap in 2024, especially after its performance dipped during the 2023 season.
The following day, it’s Ferrari’s turn, with a car concept increasingly resembling the Red Bull Racing vehicle. With this, the Italian team hopes to bring the world title back to Maranello.
