Szafnauer gives timeline on when Aston Martin will challenge

Otmar Szafnauer has outlined his ambitious long-term targets for Aston Martin, who launched their ARM21 challenger on Wednesday afternoon. The team boss is realistic about what they can hope to achieve this season, but could a world title triumph be possible one day?

Aston Martin team principal Otmar Szafnauer has targeted winning a world title within the next five years, following the team's re-entry into Formula 1 this year.

For Aston Martin, the prospect of winning titles may appear to be slim right now, but Szafnauer maintains that won't be the case for much longer.

“The two things that have to happen is one we need a good plan, in order for us to start today and get to world championship contenders - and then we've got to execute", the 56-year-old told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media.

"We're in the midst of that planning now. The execution will definitely take some time. People in F1 and other teams have said you know you've got to give us three to five years to do so. And we're no different".

The team will hope to build upon last season's good progress, where it competed under the name Racing Point.

As well as winning their first race at the Sakhir Grand Prix, the Silverstone-based outfit also managed to earn themselves a pole position in Turkey thanks to Lance Stroll's heroics in the wet.

However, with a new factory in the works, and the backing of the Aston Martin brand, the team's boss predicts big things moving forwards.

“Towards the end of 2022, we should be moving into a new factory for example, and within that factory we're going to need state of the art tools that will help us design and develop a car that's worthy of contending for a world championship, so that's a few years away.

“If I have to look into the future, you know it'll be in the three to five year time period.”
