There were reports to suggest that BWT had parted ways with Aston Martin as they are no longer mentioned on the team’s website. Now, in 2022, they are said to make a deal with the French team. Seeing how pink the company’s color is, the F1 fan base gave some reactions to the team’s concept car for the 2022 season.

One user mocked Fernando Alonso’s “El Plan” with the comment “El Pink”, another wrote “trashh”. Upon seeing Esteban Ocon wearing a pink racing suit during his time with the British team, one commented: “Ocon is like ‘not in the pink suit again'”. One fan was extremely frustrated with BWT and wrote: “GET OUT OF MY HEAD BWT”

“Right now I think we’re in better shape than we were in March 2021. But we still have a few things to fix. We definitely have to close the gap on the engine side. So we have a new project in this part and we also need to close the aero performance gap,” he concluded. (Translated from Turkish via Google)
