Red Bull doesn’t need Porsche in 2026 says Horner

Red Bull will go it alone if a highly expected works deal with Porsche is not finalised. That is the claim of Red Bull team boss Christian Horner, after new Volkswagen and current Porsche CEO Oliver Blume admitted that talks about the German marque’s 2026 Formula 1 entry are still ongoing. Indeed, Horner says Red Bull is still ploughing ahead with its own engine program – Red Bull Powertrains – while rumours of Honda’s returning to full works status for 2026 are gathering speed. The big paddock rumour is that Red Bull is pushing back on Porsche’s demands as what level of control, influence and philosophy a proposed 50 percent team buyout would entail. “Anything Red Bull would consider should fit into the team’s long-term strategy,” Horner said.
