Video: Aston Martin’s ‘naive’ call for F1 rule help explained

Apr 21 2021

Aston Martin has had a difficult beginning to the 2021 Formula 1 season and the blame has been squarely pointed at aerodynamic rule changes introduced over the winter.

Its frustrations triggered a request for help from the FIA to do something to restore the competitiveness of itself and Mercedes, with surprise suggestions Aston Martin could even consider taking legal action against the governing body if that wasn’t forthcoming.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said he couldn’t understand the plea, and labelled it a bit naive.

In this video, we look at this unexpected development in an Aston Martin-led F1 rules row, explore some of the tensions behind it, and explain why nothing is likely to change.
