Andy Palmer, the Aston Martin president and CEO, has revealed that a number of Formula 1 teams have shown an interest in working with the British manufacturer. Last year Aston Martin announced that they would become Red Bull’s main sponsor for 2018 and when asked about supplying multiple teams, Palmer said “I have some rough math in terms of what cost and what price. With all of this stuff in F1, you have to factor in intangibles because you’re talking about a marketing return, not necessarily a physical return. Marketing return hopefully turns into sold cars, which is why we’re doing this." - Planet F1

Mick Schumacher, Michael’s 18-year-old son, is set to stay in European F3 for 2018 in what will mark his second year in the competition.

A couple of times, I’ve even called him Michael on the radio." - Sportsmole
