F1 team to keep independence under new CEO

Red Bull Racing will continue to enjoy “independence” under new management in the wake of the energy drink company’s founder Dietrich Mateschitz’s passing. Dr Helmut Marko, who was the closest contact between Mateschitz and the premier F1 team, said Red Bull Racing is “the strongest and most efficient marketing tool in the entire group”. He said he isn’t sure if Honda is receptive to sharing the technical responsibilities between the Japanese carmaker and Red Bull’s own ‘Red Bull Powertrains’ subsidiary. “In the end, if they hadn’t left, we could have saved the whole investment,” Marko added, referring to Red Bull’s preparations to be able to go it alone from 2026.
