Marko confirms new Tokyo talks with Honda

Red Bull is leaving the door wide open for a full revival of the works Honda engine partnership. With ‘HRC’ (Honda Racing Corporation) branding on the 2022 car, Red Bull Powertrains now officially powers both Red Bull and Alpha Tauri cars – but the basis of the power units is still very much Honda. Red Bull had intended to maintain that strategy through to 2026, when a new works partnership with Porsche would begin. Amid rumours Hyundai and Ford are also eyeing the 2026 rules, Red Bull has in the meantime rekindled talks with Honda – and the initial fruit of those talks is renewed ‘Honda’ branding on the 2022 cars. “We were in Tokyo and had talks with Honda,” he told Sky Deutschland.
