Aston Martin become latest team to reveal 2024 car launch date
Aston Martin have become the fourth team to confirm their 2024 car launch plans, with the new AMR24 set to be revealed to the world on February 12.
It follows on from announcements that Williams and Sauber will kick off their seasons on February 5, and Ferrari on February 13, a day after Aston Martin.
Aston Martin were one of the surprises of the 2023 campaign as a busy winter of development saw them initially emerge as Red Bull’s nearest challengers.

While that strong start faded, the team and new signing Fernando Alonso ended the year with eight podium finishes, as well as rising from seventh to fifth in the constructors’ standings.
As per the rest of the F1 grid, the Silverstone team will field an unchanged driver line-up in 2024 as Alonso continues alongside Lance Stroll, who is set for his fourth season in green.
Alonso recently commented that Aston Martin “had opportunities” to win races in 2023 and set a series of targets for the AMR24, including improved top speed, a wider operating window and more consistency.
