James Bond's car-maker Aston Martin has unveiled their new vehicle for the 2021 Formula 1 season. Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel will be joined by Lance Stroll as the team make their first appearance on the F1 grid since 1960.
Aston Martin is the rebranded Racing Point team, which was previously known as Force India. Aston Martin has opted for traditional British racing green as the base colour of its livery, while retaining pink accents representing last year's title sponsor BWT.
Bond girl Gemma Arterton, who played Agent Fields in the 2008 film 'Quantum of Solace' hosted the event, which also included a special appearance from 007 himself, Daniel Craig.
The first Grand Prix of the 2021 season will be held on the weekend of March 26-28 in Bahrain.
