2026 engine will be Red Bull, not Ford

Red Bull, not Ford, will be at the heart of the reigning champion team’s power unit for 2026 and beyond. It is becoming clear why Red Bull, having set up its new Red Bull Powertrains subsidiary, opted for a Ford alliance rather than one with Honda or Porsche. “Even if the team may be called Red Bull Ford or Ford Red Bull,” explained Marko, “the engine will come solely from Red Bull Powertrains. Red Bull Racing is currently dominating Formula 1, but behind the scenes there has been a lot of change – particularly after founder Dietrich Mateschitz died. Red Bull Racing has always been very independent,” said the 79-year-old Austrian. Therefore, Marko said he isn’t sure how long he will remain at Red Bull, as he never actually formalised his role with an official title or even a contract.
