The Silverstone-based outfit was fast out of the blocks last year, with Fernando Alonso picking up six podiums in the opening eight races, before slumping to fifth in the Constructors' standings as its rivals out-developed the team.

But things could change with the new AMR24, which was unveiled on Monday [February 12] morning, if the right lessons have been learned.

Alonso and Lance Stroll will hope so with the new machinery, which retains the green colour scheme it has used since 2021.

The team has described the car as an “exciting evolution” from its 2023 challenger and provided an insight into the changes to the car's specifications, including an updated front wing to “help manage front wheel wake in a more efficient manner”.

There are notable changes to the sidepod area and bodywork “to improve airflow management around the floor and over the rear wing”.

The AMR24 also features a push-rod suspension layout at both the front and rear of the car.

Following its strong campaign last year, Team Principal Mike Krack is targeting a trip to the top step of the podium this season.

“We are proud to debut the AMR24,” said Krack. “It is the result of a huge effort by the whole team at our new AMR Technology Campus and it will allow the team to take another step forward in 2024.

“Since the last race in 2023, everyone has been hyper-focused on improvements in every area, concentrating our efforts on what really makes a difference, what really matters to be better.

“Almost every area of the car has been refined and improved, building on our strengths, and taking on board the lessons of the previous campaign.

“2023 was our best season to date and our goal this season is to score regular points, podiums, and fight for our first win in green.”
