Krack confident as Aston Martin achieve 'fantastic' milestone

As well as enjoying an upsurge in performance in 2023, Aston Martin are also moving into their state-of-the-art new factory, something that Team Principal Mike Krack is already seeing the benefits of.

Aston Martin boss Mike Krack has hailed the impact of the Formula 1 team's "fantastic" new factory, with the moving-in process taking place prior to the Spanish Grand Prix. After months of anticipation, the new facility near Silverstone has now welcomed the first group of staff from the old building. While the process of moving across to the factory is ongoing, Krack feels that the change has already had a positive impact and is confident that this will continue. "It’s fantastic – you should come and have a look. It's really, really nice," Krack told media, including RacingNews365.com . "We moved in last week. Not everything is ready yet, to be fair, but the first floor is full of people, a lot of smiles and the communication is much better. "We have seen already after one day that you have a much better exchange between the people. You see different people that you have maybe not seen as often as before. "So, it was a good first week and it will continue to be very good." Check out digital images of what the factory should look like below.

Move is 'not a five-minute job'

With plenty of features to move over to the new factory, Krack admits that the process is planned ahead in great detail. "For someone like me, it’s easy. I pack a box, someone puts it in the new office, I go in the new office and plug in, so that is easy," Krack said. "But for production especially, with autoclaves, with machines, it is not a five-minute job. This is all well-planned, so that we have no downtime. "We have a simulator to move, so all these kind of things are planned well in advance and they will move over gradually."
