Aston Martin reveals AMR24, aiming to build on successful 2023


By on

Aston Martin has revealed its new AMR24 in a brief launch this morning. After some struggles to improve their 2023 car during the season, the team is looking to have a solid platform for development in 2024.

Technical director Dan Fallow explained before the launch that the team was aiming for a car that has a wider operating window, making it easier to setup for various different tracks.

“We want a race car that is more of an all-rounder,” Fallows explained.

“We believe the AMR24 provides the ideal platform for in-season development and a sustained season-long challenge.”

As with most launches, Aston Martin revealed a rendering of their new car as surely some parts are still under construction while teams also want to keep their cars close to their chest. One important change though is the rear suspension which the team “inherited” from Mercedes as the team continued to use hydraulics, gearbox and rear suspension from Mercedes’s yet to be revealed 2024 contender.

This change includes a switch from a pull rod to push rod setup. The change dictates that the suspension actuating components are moved higher up in the rear of the car, all for the benefit of reduced volume at the bottom. A clear pathway for air to flow from over the sidepods down onto the diffuser is believed to be crucial for best performance.

“We’ve inherited new suspension from Mercedes, they give us the gearbox and the structure of the rear suspension. That has changed slightly from last year as well. So there’s a change on the rear, but the front is very similar.”

“The front suspension layout is a similar layout to what we had on the AMR23, still a pushrod,” says technical director Dan Fallows.

The AMR24 will hit the track for the first time later on Monday in a Silverstone shakedown.
