Helmut Marko, Director of Red Bull Motorsport, said: “We are delighted to be able to continue working with Honda, we have had a successful partnership so far, which has taken us to the 2021 Drivers’ Championship and to the top of the 2022 Drivers’ Championship.”

Honda has been supplying engines to Red Bull and sister team Alpha Toure since 2018, but wanted to withdraw from Formula 1 in 2021. Red Bull has formed an in-house engine maker, Powertrains, to work with Honda during a transition period.

So far, the plan states that Powertrains should operate on their own after the 2023 season. This has now been discarded in light of the overhaul for the 2026 season. The engines will continue to be “Japan-ready,” Marko noted at Autorevue in the spring.
