Ex Red Bull man reveals ‘game changer’ at Aston Martin

Ex Red Bull chief strategist who currently heads up a leading position within Aston Martin has revealed that the new factory will be a “game changer” for the Aston Martin team. Before the end of the 2023 Formula 1 season, all Aston Martin staff will be housed in the new 37,000 square metre state-of-the-art factory at Silverstone in the UK.

At Aston Martin, the delivery of the new 37,000-square-metre factory is expected to enable the team’s staff to work more efficiently, which could be a major game-changer according to Dan Fallows, the British manufacturer’s team technical director.




State-of-the-art Facility

The new three-unit factory is being built on land opposite the historic British Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone: one building will house the team’s design, manufacturing and marketing resources; a second will be occupied by the brand new wind tunnel; and the third will be refurbished and re-use the existing factory premises as a central hub including staff facilities and a logistics centre.


For the first time, this new factory will house all manufacturing resources within a single campus – the team currently operates from several separate buildings, with additional work outsourced externally.

As well as upgrading and expanding facilities and machinery, the new factory will be complemented by a brand new wind tunnel and a brand new Formula 1 simulator.


When asked if the new factory is due to be delivered soon and if the team is looking forward to moving into the new facility, Dan Fallows said:

“It’s going to be in a few months, so yes, we’re very excited about that,” he admitted.

“We’re a team that likes to work collaboratively, we like to be able to have good interactions with the people we work with. It’s not so easy with the way we’re set up at the moment.”

“The new factory will allow a lot more people to be on the same site and in fact, in the drawing office, everyone will be in the same room. So that’s a big, big deal for us and it’s going to be a game changer, I think.”

It will be the first brand new F1 factory in the UK for 17 years, the most recent being the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, which was officially opened in 2004.
