'Beautiful, love it' – Aston Martin 2022 F1 car with 'gills' compared to a SHARK as fans rave about stunning design

FORMULA 1 fans are raving about Aston Martin's new shark-like design.

Lawrence Stroll's team unveiled their new car for 2022 with a glossy video posted to social media earlier today.



The new AMR22 will be driven around the world by four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and Stroll's son, Lance.

Aston Martin's design has gone down a treat with fans, with some even saying it has a shark-like quality.

Accompanied by a gif of a shark swimming, one wrote: "I love the gills. Looks absolute massive! Can't wait to see it on track!"

Another excited fan wrote: "Seb's 5th title winning car looks great team."

A third exclaimed: "Holy f*** that's beautiful."

Upon the car's release Stroll, 62, said: "The Aston Clinton hill climb is about an hour's drive from Gaydon and it was there that Lionel Martin launched Aston Martin into the heat of competition.

"That was the start of the climb that our Formula 1 team is still on today.

"We have a five-year plan to keep climbing and get to the top.”

Vettel, quoted by F1's official website, added: "Look at that car, who wouldn't feel excited about the prospect of racing that? And when it comes to hopes for the season, I do not think anyone really knows what to expect.

"There are new rules and of course all the teams will be hoping that they have got it right.

"Everyone wants to win, me included, and no one would be in Formula 1 if their dream was not to win. I am no different.

This team has big ambitions and big plans, and I am hugely excited to be a part of that

"The main thing is to keep moving forward and moving up. This is only year two of a five-year plan, so we are still quite near the start.

"But this team has big ambitions and big plans, and I am hugely excited to be a part of that."

Lance Stroll added: "This is not only a big opportunity for Aston Martin, but also for all the teams.

"We just have to believe that we have done a better job and I know that everyone involved is working unbelievably hard to give Seb and me the best chance.

"At the same time, we have to be realistic heading into the new season. Our main aim is to move nearer the front than we were last year.

"That would be progress. As Seb said, it is impossible to know where every team will be until we all get on track, and even then you might not know who has really got it right until qualifying in Bahrain.

"Aston Martin has some really clever people so I am optimistic we can make good progress this year."
