VIDEO: Aston Martin’s new £200 million factory starts to take shape

Aston Martin plan to open their brand new facility in phases, with the first building to be opened partway through 2023.

Aston Martin’s quest to reach their ambitious targets is well and truly underway, with the team having released an update on YouTube, showing off their new state-of-the-art facility.

The team are in the process of building a new £200 million facility which will be made up of three buildings, with the first set to be opened partway through 2023.

Team owner Lawrence Stroll is clearly eager for the side to reach their goals, with the Canadian wanting the team to become a Championship-challenging side, something that their facilities will certainly support.

Once the entire factory is complete, there is next to no argument that Aston Martin will have the best facilities on the grid, something which will certainly support their push to become a leading side.

2022 was somewhat disappointing for the famous manufacturer, with Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll having narrowly missed out on claiming the team sixth in the Constructors’ Championship.

Despite this, the intent is clearly there for the team to progress to the top of the midfield in 2023 and 2024, with former Red Bull head of aerodynamics Dan Fallows likely to play a pivotal role in that.

Fallows joined Aston Martin at the start of 2022 and brings with him “experience” of winning, something Fernando Alonso will also bring to the outfit.

Speaking recently about the side’s aim to push towards the front, Fallows explained the team’s method to reach the top, with the side aiming to do things their “own way”.

“I do have experience of what it means to win races and championships and I think really the key message is that you just have to make sure that, in every aspect of what you’re doing, there are no holes and there are no things that can affect your performance as you go along,” Fallows told the BBC.

“The important thing for us is to make sure that we don’t just replicate what our competitors are doing. We don’t believe that’s going to help us overtake the likes of Mercedes and Red Bull and Ferrari. So we have to develop our own way of doing things and that does take time.

“But we’ve got a hugely ambitious group of people and one of the things about seeing the new factory come together is it demonstrates this momentum, this wish to accelerate the process of moving up the grid and starting to get into a winning situation.

“And I think that’s what’s really going to help us get there is this passion, motivation and belief that we will get there eventually.”

In regard to the factory, the video released by the team shows the progress being made at the new factory, thanks to a tour from project manager Guy Austin.
