Aston Martin has been signed to be the auto maker sponsor on the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car for the 2016 season. Red Bull was also signed as the “Innovation Partner” that will put Adrian Newey in charge of building a road car for Aston Martin. This deal is huge and could have the likes of Aston Martin competing with the hypercar scene in the next few years.
Newey has been working on the road car with Aston for about the last two years since he stepped down from Red Bull Racing role. The project code name has been released as “AM-RB 001.”

Newey’s accomplishments are astonishing in Formula 1, with 10 World Championships with Williams, McLaren and Red Bull Racing.
