As we are now heading towards the sixth round of the Formula 1 2022 season, the teams have now gathered enough data from the initial races, and now they want to make changes or add upgrades to their cars so that they can expect some better performance in the Spanish Grand Prix 2022 in Barcelona. So, some of the major teams have revealed the upgrades they are planning for their cars, and one of them is Aston Martin.
Silverstone-based Aston Martin has not been performing up to the fans’ expectations till now in this current season of F1, and they are in the second-last position in the Constructors’ Championship table with only 6 points, just above Williams.
With four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll driving for them, Aston Martin entered the 2022 F1 season with giant hopes of at least getting into the top 5 in the Constructors’ Championship standings, but they are far from reaching their goal till now. So, they have decided to make some changes to their car in order to improve upon their performance–and that has irked the executives at Red Bull.
Aston Martin executive Andy Green brushes off Red Bull’s allegations that his team has stolen design ideas from them
Aston Martin’s AMR22 was unveiled with all its new upgradations just ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix 2022, and ever since then, the execs at the Red Bull garage have fired accusations against Lawrence Stroll’s team, claiming that the AMR22 looks uncannily similar to their RB18. Upon their insistence, an investigation was launched by the FIA that cleared Aston Martin of all charges, but still Red Bull Team Advisor Helmut Marko said, “There is evidence that data was downloaded.”
The Chief Technical Officer for Aston Martin, Andy Green, has stuck to his claim that no intellectual property from Red Bull has been stolen in the process of developing their own upgrades for the AMR22. He has brushed off all accusations and said he has no clue why Red Bull is making such allegations.

Andy Green said, “I don’t know what these accusations are that Red Bull are talking about. All I can say is that at no stage did we ever receive any data from any team or anyone.“
