Aston Martin's new factory build near Silverstone is making good progress, as the team have shared a time-lapse video on social media.

Last year, the team began work on a new factory facility, having used the same factory as predecessors Force India, Spyker/Midland and, going even further back, Jordan during the 1990s.

With the former Racing Point team becoming Aston Martin for 2021 under Lawrence Stroll, the decision was made to heavily invest in new facilities and bolster the squad with new personnel.

After team boss Otmar Szafnauer confirmed his departure earlier this week, Aston Martin opted to share some good news by revealing the status of their factory build.

A new three-unit campus, complete with simulator and wind tunnel, will act as the new hub for the Aston Martin operation with the main building expected to be completed in either late 2022 or early in 2023.

"It is a significant investment," said Stroll back in September 2021.

"Our new buildings reflect not only the scope of our determination to become a World Championship-winning force, but also the scale of our growth and development as an organisation.

"I feel strongly that any building is a powerful representation of the people who work within it, and I am thrilled that we are creating a new home in which people can work, collaborate, create and win together.

"It is exciting to think that the entire team will be in its new home by the end of 2022 or the start of 2023, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners who are working on the project."
