ASTON MARTIN AND RED BULL RACING EXTEND INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP INTO 2017  The partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing was announced in Melbourne, Australia on the eve of the 2016 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. The Aston Martin wings have adorned the two Red Bull Racing Formula 1 cars throughout the thrilling 2016 season, which culminated with the team securing second place in the constructor's championship.

Eight months and 21 Grands Prix on from the announcement, Aston Martin is delighted to confirm that the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 cars will continue to carry the iconic Aston Martin wings in 2017. With new technical rules for 2017 it is expected to be another exciting season.

Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing said: 'We first conceived our Innovation Partnership with Aston Martin in the realisation that it could be truly pioneering. In blending our distinct but unique skills under a shared creative vision, we have already seen tangible development to both of our brand and businesses. The extraordinary success of the AM RB-001 is testament to the expert and collaborative spirit in which it was forged, and extending our relationship with Aston Martin through 2017 was a simple and pleasing decision.'

Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer said: 'By bringing together the talents of Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin, AM-RB 001 is destined to become the defining hypercar of this decade and a hugely desirable investment for collectors and enthusiasts.'
