Aston Martin explains why 2022 regulations are “scary” and “nerve-wracking”

Aston Martin gave their thoughts on the “”scary” and “nerve-wracking” regulations that will be implemented in 2022. 

2022 will see new regulations introduced into the sport. There will be changes made to the aerodynamic rules, meaning cars will be able to do wheel-to-wheel-racing and overtaking more often and with greater ease.

As a result, it was predicted that there would be very intense and close racing in the upcoming season. The midfield and the rear end will be able to take the fight to the top teams, something the Silverstone outfit will be keen about. 

Aston Martin gave their thoughts on the “”scary” and “nerve-wracking” regulations, saying they were both excited and nervous. 

As quoted by GP Fans, Aston Martin chief technical officer Andrew Green said during their car launch, “I think what we are seeing here is the first iteration of the AMR22. 

“We are on a steep learning curve and everyone is going to be on a steep learning curve. No one is going to have all of the answers yet.

“We are going to see the car develop highly over the coming season and forge the way for 2023 as well. It is an exciting time to be in Formula 1, it is also quite nerve-wracking.”

Team performance director Tom McCullough agreed, saying, “I think from an engineering point of view, there is nothing more exciting than a huge regulation change.

“It is quite scary at times too. We have been having to go back to the drawing board with a clean sheet of paper in so many areas.

“It has been fantastic fun working with the great team of people we have back at Silverstone evolving into what we see now, that will be developed quickly during the season.

“This launch car will change quickly, but it is great to be stood in front of it,” he concluded.
