Aston Martin are back in Formula One after 61 years away, with a green and pink car driven by a four-time world champion and a plan to charge up the grid… but will they find the track to success like Mercedes and Red Bull or crash like Jaguar and Honda?

Aston Martin are back in Formula One for the 2021 season with the famous British name returning to the sport as a competitor for the first time since 1960. They decided to rebrand the team Jaguar, which at the time were under Ford’s umbrella. By now the team were on the ropes financially and following another poor season where they earned four points and went through five drivers, the team went bankrupt. Honda, who already supplied the team with engines from 2000, bought them outright and turned it into a works outfit for 2006. Jordan were the rock n’ roll team at the start of the century, with eye-catching livery, fancy car launches and a strong team capable of race wins. In 2002, Jarno Trulli and Jenson Button brought the team to fourth in the championship. The team changed their name to AlphaTauri in 2020 but are still controlled by Red Bull.
