Itís funny how the previous incarnation, Force India, came close to a deal with them only in 2015. No wonder Vijay has reacted happily to the deal between Stroll and Aston. Will be a bit of a shame that RBR wonít have a partnership with Aston anymore, they seemed to go together well IMHO

So this team started out Irish, then got bought out by the Russians, then a Dutch car company, then by the Indians, then by the Canadians and has now done a deal with a legendary British car company

Interestingly I was interviewed for a job recently, and they were at the time doing work for Aston martin, bizarrely the work was lost after i attended. So the offer was withdrawn, they were pretty much the only firm doing that much work with them.

Either a lame excuse or AM were tightening the strings a bit just before this was all done and pulled out of this work for now. It was for stuff not yet in prod.

It's exactly that using up the reserves. Dealers aren't buying as many as previously but the cars are selling faster than previous years. Days on inventory were down by a higher percentage than the whole sale decline. The cars are made at a profit and outside of factory construction AM is making money. The delays in the factory and poor terms on the previous loans were hurting short term.

And buying an electric power train isn't that difficult now. They wouldn't start from scratch

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
The business journalists have been reporting for some while that Aston Martin had a serious need for more operating capital.Adding to their range was making the need rather more acute and the account in post #17 would suggest that some of the expenditure had been put on ice.Maybe a consequence of their public listing as quoted companies have to be a both more transparent and more prudent than their private counterparts.I suspect the initial cash injection will turn out to be just the first installment and several more will be needed.Maybe the reflected glory of Formula 1 involvement will shift a few cars and assist with a return on the mountain of money that will be tied up.

A repeat of 1959 and 1960 is hardly likely

All the more reason why Aston Martin's 2nd attempt should be more successful than 1959/1960.

I'm not very good at explaining things I just remember reading Aston Martin's profile on the former F1 Rejects.

So this is why Aston Martin pulled out of DTM.

I guess Honda should be happy to be the lone manufacturer on next year's Red Bull.

Wasn't the Aston Martin DTM with-drawl because R-Motorsport didn't want to run through 2020? They want to run the AMR Hypercar this year.

Exactly that, Aston didn't pull out as much as the team running them quit. No team entered means you aren't running any more. Nothing to do with the Stroll and Co buy-in.
