The car will have its first run at Silverstone in a promotional day on March 4, before it races properly at Bahrain between 12 and 14 March.Aston Martin's last Grand Prix car was the DBR5 more than 60 years ago.It was driven by Roy Salvadori and Maurice Trintignant in the 1960 British Grand Prix.Even though I have raced for four Formula One teams and for many years, starting a new season with a new team still gives me a sense of excitement, said Vettel in a statement per CNBC.I have always kept my eye on the competition and this team has consistently impressed me with what they have been able to do without the biggest of budgets.The potential is there to fight up at the front, perhaps even challenge Red Bull. Mercedes are going to be very difficult because they are a bit further up the road and hopefully we can increase the gap over the teams we were fighting last year, Stroll said in an interview with the BBC.The car is powered by a turbo-charged Mercedes-AMG F1 M12 E Performance engine with hybrid energy recovery, Aston Martin said.The team's other sponsors include beer maker Peroni, cryptocurrency website Crypto.com, and cybersecurity company SentinelOne.Lawrence Stroll dropped more than $240 million on a 16.7% stake in Aston Martin in January 2020 when the company was financially struggling.Stroll took the position of executive chairman in April. The first step was to raise the financing to see our business plan through for the next five years, he told CNBC. We raised $800 million in equity, with the majority of that coming from myself and my consortium. That was for a business plan that brings us to 10,000 cars, $2 billion of volume and $500 million EBITDA in the next four years.
