In the Aston Martin garage, during the Pirelli test in Abu Dhabi held on Tuesday, Fernando Alonso’s friend and compatriot Pedro de la Rosa, who became the new ambassador of the British team, was also there.
The latter discussing the choice made by the now former Alpine standard bearer, who will team up with Lance Stroll in Aston Martin having taken the place of Sebastian Vettel, believes it is the best he could have done. Not for recent sporting results, but for the goals that the green team wants to achieve in the near future.
“You always have to bet on the best available option and at the moment, without a doubt, it is Aston Martin – declared de la Rosa interviewed by AS – But not for the current performance, which everyone sees. What Fernando sees and what we in the team see are the ambitions, the changes, the tools, the new wind tunnel, the new simulator, the new factory. There’s a lot to look forward to and that’s Aston Martin’s calling card, the main reason Fernando is here. It’s the future. But we don’t know how long it will take for it to bear fruit, this is not a football team that by signing a four-star contract will already take you to a good point”.
