Sebastian Vettel is continuing his tradition of naming his cars and is looking to James Bond girls for inspiration for his first Aston Martin.
The German has become renowned for giving each of his F1 cars a female name from his first, Julie, to his most recent, Lucilla.
With less than a month to go until the start of the 2021 campaign, he has yet to decide on what he’ll name his AMR21, but he has a few ideas connected to his new team…
“The problem is I don’t know yet,” Vettel said at Aston Martin’s AMR21 launch.
“James would be a bit too obvious, but you know I’m thinking about it and playing around with the Bond theme.
“But it’s a fun thing and it’s always been a female name, so check out all the Bond girls to see which one is the best match.
“I was going to say we should meet them all, but some of them are the age of my grandmother.”
