How much pressure is on F1's most underperforming team?

The grandeur and expectation around Aston Martin’s big re-entry into Formula 1 has been replaced with revised targets and "pressure" amid its early underachievement.

In this video, we explore what that means for the team and why it will come down to how much patience team owner Lawrence Stroll has, along with the argument for its 2021 slump being a special case.

We also assess the role a breakthrough result for the team and Sebastian Vettel can play in Aston Martin's fortunes, after the four-time world champion and star signing emerged as a silver lining amid the difficult start

I disagree with the intro framing this season as “Aston Martin’s grand re-entry into F1”. From my understanding, Stroll basically bought the Aston Martin company and put its name onto last year’s Racing Point team and car. So, this was not a re-entry as much as a re-branding. Whatever expertise Aston Martin as a company may bring to the table probably won’t make much of a difference until 2022.

I hope Aston is going to get rid of Vettel, and bring someone younger. Is obvious that Vettel is there for money only, he's got nothing to prove anymore, he is multiple world champion.

It should be expected that moving from a Mercedes copy to a more standard car will have a serious impact on performance. And don't get too excited about their Monaco results as this track has nothing to do with "real" F1 race tracks.

Why is the blame being put on the team, last years success game from Perez who they dumped for someone who has not been performing very well in recent years and kept someone who has not performed well in any year.

Well, Vettel finishing 5th in Monaco(5th race) with number 5 and Aston Martin up to 5th in constructor. Coincident? I think not.
ADi SKYLiNE 21 dag siden
Think Aston could be a dark horse for next season, they had consistently strong seasons on a limited budget as Force India/RP and the budget cap could definitely therefore work in their favor compared to e.g. Ferrari + their driver pairing is really underrated with Seb being experienced and a top 2/3 driver of his era and Lance still being really young and improving every season since he joined F1. Would put their lineup top 6 with top 3 potential

Perez was the difference last year. Whether it is called RP or AM they are mid field mediocrity at best. Vettel same. Now they have (unrealistic) expectations and pressure of a billionaire owner.

Let's be realistic... Monaco is special. Everyone benefitted from Leclerc not starting and the overcut was very lucky (yet deserved). I hope AMR bring more upgrades to the coming races so they can justify their fifth place in the constructors.

I think that your analysis is pretty accurate, particularly about the dispute being a show to placate an angry owner. I think a lot of people can relate "OK, boss. You've heard why I think this isn't going to work, but we'll do it your way..." all the while making plans to do scuttle the boss' plan as soon as he's distracted or complaining about something else. If you've ever had to intentionally put typos in a memo, write-up or proposal so that your boss could spot them and chew you out for it so he could feel like he's still running the show, you'll know what I mean.

It's bad Karma for Aston, just like Ferrari had in 2020. Ferrari cheated in 2019, and screwed over a devoted driver in 2020. Aston cheated, and screwed their truly devoted driver, all in the same year (2020). Unlike Ferrari, next season Aston will not improve much. The Strolls will get what they deserve.

Hot take: They're performing exactly to expectations, after the FIA slapped them on the wrist for all but 3d printing someone else's car. And then nerfed the advantage they gained from doing it, with the aero changes.

They wouldn't be in this situation if they didn't use a 100% mercedes clone. So no sympathy from me, you can't run a 3 year old car and expect it to be perfectly suited to the regulations, and when it's not threaten with legal action instead of designing your own car.

Vettel is a really nice guy and it would be great to see him continue to perform as he did in Monaco. The next race is Baku which is a favourite for teammate Lance Stroll so maybe this is a real turn around.

There is lot of pressure always when you invest and hype. But we all know it takes time for every thing to bed in people, process, systems with drivers.Continuity is king! I never had big expectations ..real test starts next year and beyond. Signing ex world champion is always difficult with managing expectations. I think Vettel was best suited for Monaco and my still struggle on other tracks ...hope not ...let’s see. People need to remember Vettle probably brings lot more than driving ...help to push the brand in home market etc. Let’s see

well, what everyone expected came to pass: they copied mercedes concept successfully, but are now not able to adapt and improve on it as well as mercedes is, and as the other teams are on their own concept. im guessing this is a short term problem though, the question is what the designers whip up for the next season when theres nothing to copy. the good ol racing points were not bad after all.

Screw it. If your team sucks this year (as for HAAS I don't know WTF they are going to do) I wouldn't even stress it too much. Fight to see what you can get this season and leave it there. Guarantee that they can't wait for this season to end because they are already looking forward to next year.

I feel like Monaco really was special for most teams on the F1 grid. All drivers that switched team seemed to have set a huge step forwards and really got at home at their new team.
Ruftinator 23 dager siden
@Niwesh Lekhak even those are learning moments though. Alonso left for 2 years and that always makes it hard to return but he’ll probably get on the pace throughout the year. Ricciardo doesn’t have that benefit but I heard somewhere that the MCL35M drives differently from what he’s used to which means he has to completely re-learn how to drive quickly with that car. I feel like part of that is likely due to the Mercedes power unit as Ricciardo has never driven a car that didn’t have a Renault power unit until now.

Stroll took a team that practiced great engineering and managed to perform extremely well with the resources they had and turned it into a copy shop. Of course they are going to struggle to upgrade a car they didn't develop in the first place.

People think its drivers fault when the car doesnt have the race pace and have the pace only for 1 lap but dont forget that Vettel is in new car, chassis, engine and etc. There was video about the AMR21 in the official F1 channel that the AMR21 is brand new car and etc. In Monaco he was in pace with Max and hold Perez for many laps and also pulled gap to Gasly and Gasly wasnt able to catch him and also AM is struggling with the low rake just like Mercedes because MB didnt had the pace in Monaco. For me when AM stop struggling a lot they mind have chance in P4 P5 or even P3 in constructors but thats the main problem they dont know how to fix it or trying to fix it. 2022 will be better for them and for many other low teams.

Aston might even not want to better their position if they can handle not being fifth. As money isn't a problem for them, they don't rely on finishing as high up as possible for funding which is why they can definetly go with finishing lower this season to concentrate on '22 and also gain more windtunnel time for next year.
