How important is the AM-RB 001 for Aston Martin?
“It’s really pushing the envelope of what we can do. The way we’re working with Adrian Newey, the car is split between the core skills of the two companies.
“Aston Martin knows how to make a good-looking car, how to make it driveable on the public road and how to package people inside it. That’s not to say that Adrian doesn’t know how to package people, but the ones he deals with are racing driver size and packaged for a specific purpose.
“It feels very fresh to work on. We’re creating new solutions to the problems we’re discovering on the way, so it is quite exciting.”
How exciting has it been to work with Newey?
“We can see exactly why Adrian has won 10 world championships, because his ability to go through a rulebook and push the boundaries to their limits is stunning.
