Marko in talks with Honda and others about 2026

Dr Helmut Marko says Red Bull is “in talks with Honda” – but insists the energy drink company’s Formula 1 operations can thrive without an engine partner. Porsche has followed in Red Bull’s wheeltracks by confirming that negotiations for a 50 percent works partnership for 2026 and beyond have collapsed. Red Bull’s Marko says the breakdown of the talks will not be mourned. When asked what went wrong with Porsche, Marko said Red Bull ultimately decided that “neither side” would ultimately have benefitted from a deal. “Ultimately, Porsche wanted to fill or double-fill every position at Red Bull,” said the 79-year-old.
