Aston Martin to build own F1 gearbox

The next step in Aston Martin’s push for ultimate success in Formula 1 is to build its own gearbox. But Aston Martin and Honda announced last week that they are teaming up for a works collaboration from 2026 – prompting the team’s decision to design and build its own gearbox. “From 2026 onwards, we are aiming to make the gearbox in-house along with the rear suspension,” team boss Mike Krack confirmed. However, Krack is also arguing that Formula 1 should rethink its rules about requiring teams to build their own gearboxes or to buy one from a rival team. “We are discussing with the FIA how to develop a gearbox with simpler technology and better cost performance in order to make the whole sport more sustainable.”.
