Honda committed to Red Bull until 2026 says Marko

Red Bull and Honda say they will continue to collaborate in Formula 1 even though they will definitely part ways at the end of 2025. After Honda decided to pull out of the sport at the end of 2021, Red Bull commenced plans for its own engine subsidiary – Red Bull Powertrains. Ultimately, Red Bull decided to pair its engine subsidiary with Ford for the new engine regulations in 2026 – while Honda shopped around for a new works team. Marko admits Red Bull was one of the teams that sat down for 2026 talks with Honda. “There were talks but we couldn’t agree with Honda on who would do what,” said the 80-year-old Austrian. Marko said Ford “don’t have the experience” in modern F1 compared to Honda, “but they can contribute a lot with on the battery side”.
