The car is green but it is NOT British Racing Green; that is a far darker shade entirely.

Great to see the name back in F1, even though the last time they were in F1(1959/60), the project was a failure as they were too late to the party with an outmoded design.

From the Aston Martin F1 site.

The AMR21 carries a striking Aston Martin Racing Green livery in recognition of Aston Martin's traditional racing colours and glorious sporting legacy.

Ah, “Aston Martin Racing Green”; their sports cars and F1 car in the 1950s all used this colour so it makes sense again now. It is definitely not BRG though.

Correct its a Mercedes M12 E Performance 1.6 V6 t. Though i think the most significant change to this team is that Sergio Perez went to Red Bull.

I for one am interested to see how Vettel performs away from Ferrari who he blamed for all his bad performances.... though the fact he received a grid penalty in qualifying and a time penalty in the race THEN finished in 15th place, doesnt exacty support his case of "The car let him down" .....

Is it not still Mercedes AMG engines they use in their road cars?
