Aston Martin have announced that team principal Otmar Szafnauer has left the team and will stand down from his role at the British outfit.

Szafnauer has been heavily linked with a switch to Alpine late into the 2021 season but denied a move was ever on the cards.

A team statement read: “Otmar Szafnauer has left the company and his role at Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team will be managed within the leadership team until a replacement is appointed.

“We would like to thank him for the service provided to the team over the past 12 years and wish him well for the future as he will undoubtedly take on new challenges

“Fortunately, we are led and managed by a strong group of individuals, and we are comfortable to take a little time to explore options before announcing a new team structure.

“The focus of the team is currently on preparing the most competitive car possible for the start of the 2022 season.”
