Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Brady offered his support in a video message for a team that in 2020, as Racing Point, finished fourth overall but won a race and were often third fastest.
“Hey Lance and Seb, looks like your ride is finally here and it looks amazing,” he said. “I’ll be cheering you guys every step of the way … good luck and kick some ass.”
Lawrence Stroll, team owner and father of Lance, is also the executive chair of Aston Martin and has big plans for expanding the brand and taking his team to the top.
“I have dreamed about this day for a very long time,” he said.
“My first dream was to own a F1 team. My second dream was to acquire a significant shareholding in Aston Martin Lagonda. Today is about the merging of those two dreams.
“This is just the beginning. The team is pushing forward, and our ambitions are limitless. We now have the pieces in place, the people and the partners, to make real progress.”
Aston Martin say they can give Sebastian Vettel what he wants this season and get the best out of the F1 world champion as he starts afresh after recent struggles at Ferrari.
The 33-year-old German last won in Singapore in 2019, with Ferrari well off the pace in 2020 in their worst campaign since 1980.
