Fernando Alonso joined Aston Martin for the post-season tests in Abi Dhabi, making the most of his track time, and in a single day he impressed everyone.

"The efficiency of transmitting messages was very impressive," Team Principal Mike Krack told media outlets as they got shown around the team's new factory that is due to be up and running next year. 

"It was straight to the point at all times. Very friendly, open and transparent,” he added.

"With Fernando, I always hold up this picture of [this year's] Mexican Grand Prix of his frustration at not having finished seventh [because the car broke down in the closing laps]. This is an example of dedication and motivation.

"So if you have someone with this with this passion and drive to win, it has an impact on the team.”

In Krack’s opinion, Alonso’s energy and determination will become a driving force for the Silverstone-based Team and can guide everyone in the right direction next year.

"And we could clearly see that everybody was really happy to have this guy in the car last Tuesday. So I think he ignited maybe another spark from his own passion and desire to win on to the team."

Regarding the passage between Vettel and Alonso, the Team Principal explained how the two drivers are different from each other, with the exception of one characteristic: focus.

"They have different backgrounds. One is Latin and one is German and that makes a big difference, but what they have in common is the focus - the focus on improving, the focus on making progress and isolating what makes us progress instead of maybe just being detailed."

With a new factory almost ready to welcome the team, described as a “game changer” by Krack, it seems like a new beginning, especially after a season that many will probably want to forget. 

We will see the results of this collaboration next year.
