Aston Martin has once again taken over a leader from another top team. Eric Blandin will make the switch to the racing stable from Mercedes’ camp at the end of the 2022 season. Blandin is a big name in the aerodynamic world of Formula 1. He previously worked for Ferrari and Red Bull.
An Aston Martin spokesperson confirms Blandin’s arrival. “His exact start date has yet to be determined.” The racing stable emphasizes that Mercedes and Aston Martin have come out without dissatisfaction. “The transition from Mercedes to us will be a friendly one.”
Blandin started his Formula 1 career with Jaguar Racing and stayed with the stable when the team was bought by Red Bull. Later, the aerodynamics specialist worked for Ferrari, before moving to Mercedes. He will be working here from 2017. After a mandatory break, he will transfer to Aston Martin after the 2022 season.
