Aston Martin currently sits ninth in the F1 Constructor standings, after a generally disappointing start to the 2022 season.

Miami and Imola were encouraging Grand Prix for Aston, though, with the team securing consecutive points finishes in the fourth and fifth rounds of the season.

Aston Martin's race pace in Miami was very encouraging, especially given Vettel and Stroll were forced to start from the pit lane due to a pre-race fuel issue. In an effort to continue their recent upturn in form, Aston Martin will bring several updates to the Spanish GP, which will reportedly turn the AMR22 into a "semi-new car".

Aston will not be the only team to bring improvements to Catalunya, but few teams have generated the same level of speculation about their Spanish GP update package.

Whispers first emerged after an underwhelming first race in Bahrain, suggesting that Aston Martin was preparing radical changes to rectify their troubled start.

Whilst these reports were somewhat exaggerated; it seems they carried some level of truth, as the AMR22 will be subject to notable changes in the upcoming rounds.

Aston Martin's team principal, Mike Krack, has outlined the team's aim to bring upgrades at every race for the rest of the season to recover from a somewhat underwhelming start.

German outlet Auto Motor Und Sport report that Aston Martin's upgrades will lead to visible differences, with changes to the sidepods among the anticipated improvements.

There is some concern about whether both cars will receive these updates, as shortages may force the team to bring their upgrade package to just one of their cars in Spain.

It would not be the first time a team only has parts available for one driver, so this is far from catastrophic news.

Despite this, Aston Martin will look to ensure they can give both Vettel and Stroll the best chance to continue the team's point scoring streak, as the F1 grid prepares itself for back-to-back races.
