After more than 60 years away from Formula One, Aston Martin returns to Grand Prix racing in 2021. With one of the most iconic emblems in the world emblazoned above the garages and a team of over 450 passionate men and women at its heart, this is a team with both a rich heritage and a fresh perspective – and now a brand-new title sponsor: Cognizant.
The team will be known as Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team when it lines up on the starting grid for the new season, with Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel behind the wheel on-track.
In a sport where technology and innovation take centre stage, Aston Martin has Cognizant as its partner, not just as a title sponsor. Cognizant will be a true digital transformation partner with a real purpose. The multiyear association brings real energy to the new era of Aston Martin in Formula One, with Cognizant ideally placed to empower the team with the best IT infrastructure and software solutions on the market.
Lawrence Stroll, Chairman, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team said:
“The return of Aston Martin to Formula One after more than 60 years away is a landmark moment in the history of the sport. Everyone knows what Aston Martin stands for, but the Formula One team will allow us to take the essence of the brand to new places, building on the strong foundations laid by the previous iterations of the team. I’m hugely proud that we can start this new chapter with the support of Cognizant. In today’s world, as the digital revolution continues, I can’t think of a more suitable or valuable partner to work with us as we strive to make Aston Martin one of the greatest teams in the sport.”
