According to Aston Martin team boss Mike Krack, the team is aiming to bring upgrades to its AMR22 at every race in order to better unleash the car’s potential.

Under Krack’s leadership, Aston Martin had a rocky start to the new era of Formula 1, failing to gain points in the first three races.

The team ended its winless streak in Imola, with both Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll finishing in the top ten, allowing Aston Martin to leapfrog Williams, which Krack credited to a clean weekend, saying, he didn’t think there was much more pace in the AMR22 than previously.

Aston Martin plans to bring changes to every race, according to Krack. “We want to have continuous development and bring updates all the time – sometimes they’re a little bigger, sometimes they’re a little smaller, but it’s vital to keep the development alive,” he said.

“We have three main points that we are working on. One is aero, the most important one. Second one is car weight, very important as well.

“And the third one is how we can provide better feedback [from the car] to our drivers, that goes into the suspension, into the steering, these kinds of things, the set-up of the car.

“We need to try and give the drivers a better feel of the car so that they can extract more from it.”

The drivers’ inability to read the car’s behaviour, according to Krack, was adding to the problem.

“This is also why I think we have so many incidents at various tracks like for example Melbourne when we see our drivers went off quite a lot,” he said. “This is not normal: drivers of this quality don’t go off all the time,” he added.

“I think we made a small step [at Imola] already, some small updates, and we look forward to making more.”
