After surviving the ordeal, Stroll said that the team was ready to represent the Aston Martin brand and added that he is hoping to incorporate F1 technology in the development of its road cars.
“The group of men and women at Silverstone are true racers and their determination and spirit is one of the main reasons I invested in the Formula 1 team.
“After 30 years, they deserve this opportunity to represent this legendary brand. We are continuing to invest in the team to give everybody the resources required and we will see the benefit of those efforts this year as Racing Point.
“With the Aston name comes more pressure and expectation. We will need to be competitive from the outset. But I have no doubt the team at Silverstone will rise to the challenge and do the Aston Martin name proud.
“Not only does Formula 1 help elevate the brand, it opens up the opportunity for technology cross-over.
“I’m incredibly excited to see what technology can filter down from the racing programme into the road cars. This will be particularly relevant for the mid-engine road cars that will be launched in the future.
“There will be a genuine collaboration to ensure that our road cars share the DNA of our success on the track as well.”
