Honda to return to F1 in 2026 as engine manufacturer for Aston Martin

The partnership represents a hugely significant step in the team’s aim, made in 2021, of competing for championships within five years. The move is also a major U-turn for Honda who only pulled out of F1 at the end of 2021 just as the company delivered what was considered to be the best engine on the grid. Red Bull are to join with Ford in 2026 as their partner in engine manufacture at their powertrain plant in Milton Keynes. At this point Haas (Ferrari-engined), McLaren (Mercedes) and Williams (Mercedes) have yet to confirm engine manufacturers for 2026 but Honda said they have no plans to supply another team.
