Aston Martin will present real F1 car at today’s launch · RaceFans

Aston Martin, Circuit de Catalunya, 2021

Aston Martin will become the first Formula 1 team to present a genuine 2022 car at its launch later today.

Haas and Red Bull have already held their 2022 season launches, but neither showed its 2022 car in the flesh. Haas showed renderings of an earlier iteration of their VF-22, while Red Bull unveiled a show car in its new livery, and admitted the car they will race at the season-opener “is not going to look very much like this”.

Aston Martin will therefore break new ground with their launch this afternoon when it reveals its AMR22 in its genuine form. The team’s head of communications Matt Bishop confirmed on social media they will be “launching and unveiling our real race car”.

F1 teams are reluctant to reveal much of their new machines due to the significant changes to the technical rules which have been introduced for the 2022 season. Even with the first test of the new season less than two weeks away, the contenders are unwilling to reveal details of their new designs which could provide valuable clues to their rivals.

Following Aston Martin, McLaren will be the next team to present its 2022 challenger. However one team, Alfa Romeo, will not hold its launch until after the opening three-day test session at Circuit de Catalunya.
