Aston Martin boss Mike Krack believes the upcoming run of Formula 1 races will be an important test for the team.

Six podiums from the first 12 races and third in the standings mark a vast improvement from Aston on the 2022 season, when it was languishing near the bottom of the standings.

But while the AMR23 is an improvement on its predecessor,, the car still has a wide range of performance, with low-speed corners seemingly favoured while it does not like tracks with a mixture of corners.

Krack feels the car must simply be able to perform on any track - with the next four races in the Netherlands, Italy, Singapore and Japan crucial.

Krack's challenge

"If you want to play your role in the championship, you have to be strong everywhere," Krack told media including RacingNews365.

"You cannot say: 'We will go for that track or that track.'

"Zandvoort and Monza are very different and then we have Singapore and Japan, which are also very different.

"You need to perform well on all four of the next four tracks, and you need to have a package ready that allows you to go more on the low drag to high [aerodynamic] efficiency to high or maximum downforce.

"The car has to behave well everywhere.

"This has to be the basics and then obviously, you will do your wings to adjust to the [demands] of the [specific] track."
