As you will have undoubtedly seen during this hibernation period of Formula One there has been a lot of talk regarding Aston Martin.

British sportscar manufacturer Aston Martin returned to Formula One in March of last year.

But that deal with Red Bull Racing was merely as an ‘innovation partner’.

But it brought with it plenty of speculation that they could be lining up a move to enter the sport as either a fully fledged manufacturer or an engine supplier.

That has since been confirmed that they are considering a move into the sport for 2021. A year that there will be a complete overhaul of the current power unit and engine regulations a process that Aston Martin are being consulted with alongside current engine manufacturers.

Aston Martin believe they will be in demand for their services.

Red Bull Racing and sister team Toro Rosso are the obvious candidates, but its widely believed they have been approached by other teams as well.

But it’s not just teams that have made an approach.

‘We would like to work with that partnership,’ Cosworth boss Bruce Wood told

‘We’ve done a lot of work with Aston for many years, we’re working very closely with Red Bull and the team for the Valkyrie [hypercar], so there’s a certain logic to it.

‘Aston have been very clear that they want to be doing something more than just badging someone else’s engine.

‘They also don’t aspire to designing it all themselves, so there’s a natural fit there and certainly that’s where some of those discussions are happening.
