Mercedes split necessary for victory says Whitmarsh

Aston Martin had to move away from Mercedes in order to target the world championship, according to Group CEO Martin Whitmarsh. Whitmarsh has vast experience of working with both Mercedes and Honda from his time at McLaren, and he says the new works deal is Aston Martin’s path to victory. “Mercedes has been and continues to be a great partner,” he said. “They want to win, we are here to win too – and that’s where there is some incompatibility in these two missions, so we made this decision. He said Aston Martin’s ambition, which has began to crystallise this year with a string of early podiums in 2023, has changed starkly in the recent past.
