Aston Martin to be sole Honda team for now

Aston Martin will be the only recipient of works Honda engines in 2026, Japanese official Koji Watanabe insists. Team owner Lawrence Stroll was on hand in Tokyo for Wednesday’s big announcement, but Honda president Toshihiro Sanbe denied that the F1 deal is a precursor to joint Honda-Aston Martin road car projects. “I’m not saying it will not be possible in the future, but first of all we would like to focus on Formula 1 and get good results.”. It was also made clear that Aston Martin will be Honda’s sole ‘factory team’ – with no plans yet to supply customer F1 outfits. “Aston Martin will be the only factory team, so it will be one team,” said Honda Racing Corporation boss Koji Watanabe.
