Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team’s Lance Stroll says that although the outfit has just completed three days of pre-season testing in Bahrain they are facing a step into the unknown as the 2022 Formula One season gets underway this weekend at the Sakhir circuit.
Speaking ahead of the race Lance Stroll said:
“We may have just finished testing in Bahrain, but this weekend is a real step into the unknown, which is so exciting. I can’t wait to jump into the AMR22 and begin to find out where we are relative to the other teams. We’ll be learning every lap of the season and I’m expecting an intense development race this year. For a driver, it’s awesome to play your part in such a big season of change.”
Four-time Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel is entering his second season with the Silverstone-based outfit and is excited about the opportunity to finally race with the new Formula One cars.
“These new Formula One cars are so incredibly different to their predecessors. We’ve spent the past weeks learning as much about them as we can and I’m looking to racing a ground-effect car for the first time this weekend. Everything is new in Formula One and I think we’re looking at a very tight battle, and some very close gaps, between all the teams. There’s a lot to play for – and that’s F1 at its best.”
