Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team is a FIA Formula One World Championship constructor and entrant, which is due to compete in the 2021 Formula One World Championship after having raced as the factory team for British car manufacturer Aston Martin between 1959 and 1960.[1] Entering five Grand Prix, that Aston Martin team would have very little impact, registering a best finish of sixth courtesy of Roy Salvadori, while also fielding American driver and engineer Carroll Shelby.


Aston Martin Racing would instead focus on sports car racing after the ill-fated F1 attempts, becoming one of the most successful teams in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and a prolific GT brand. Various F1 drivers have driven for Aston Martin's GT programmes, including David Brabham, Pedro Lamy and Heinz-Harald Frentzen.

On 31 January 2020 it was announced that Aston Martin would return to the F1 paddock for the 2021 season, as part of an investment from Racing Point owner Lawrence Stroll.[2] As a result of Stroll's investment in the Aston Martin group, Racing Point have been re-branded as Aston Martin Formula One Team, effectively becoming a factory Aston Martin team, with the intention of using engines supplied by Mercedes.[2] On 6 January 2020, multi-national IT company Cognizant signed as the title sponsor for the team.
