  • 3 sounds like a fair number.  I mean, most people get no company cars, but still, 3 sounds good.  Why not 4?  Or 2?

  • I thought AM was after a sophisticated crowd.  Geek/Bully at the wheel of an AM...let me run out to a dealer right now  :crazy:

    One probably would have been fine for their sponsor commitment.

  • Is it true that Lewis gets an SLS AMG and Valtteri gets a Smart 4 Two?

    At a guess... how many residences does he maintain?

    Alternatively, if he's expected to drive while at home and at race weekends, maybe he needs three so at least one is available while the others are being shipped.  Or perhaps he needs localized RHD/LHD models

    And released only on race weekends?  And Public Service days of course.

  • Apparently his community service stint is now complete.

    So ... maybe he can become the reserve road sweeper at the Australian GP? (when his Bull breaks down) :DntKnw:

  • I assume he will have:

    - one that is only wheeled out for promotional days to keep that immaculate "just rolled off the production line" look

    - one to take around Europe for the benefit of paddock posing

    - one for home, to look good while doing the groceries while car #2 is in transit to the next race venue

  • Thing is though Ali, the one for PR events would be specifically the PR one, not his own company car.  If Aston Martin needed a pristine car, they would have it on hand, probably with Red Bull painted all over it.  The other 2 I can see though.

    Depends if they're making him pay insurance on it ;)

    Given his age, I estimate his insurance on an Aston Martin at about £30k a year, and that's with one of those black boxes installed  :D
