The Formula 1 team has changed from Silverstone several times over the past few years. In the middle of 2018, it was acquired by billionaire Lawrence Stroll. The Canadian wants to make it a new force in Formula One, so that his son Lance has a chance to fight for the championship title.

Stroll has acquired Aston Martin for effective use in F1, and the Silverstone team now operates under that name. But this is not the end. The British currently employ about 535 workers. The Canadian billionaire’s money is expected to make more than 800 of them at any given moment.

We have more employees than when we worked as Force India. We are now building a new factory and running a big hiring process. We have 535 employees, and there will be 800 or more. It all depends on F1’s cost ceiling, said Aston Martin boss Otmar Szafnauer, quoted by planetf1.com.

According to Szafnauer, Sebastian Vettel helps recruit new employees. The four-time Formula 1 world champion before the 2021 season believed in Stroll’s determination and decided to switch directly from Ferrari. This also makes engineers and mechanics confident about the future of Aston Martin.
