Red Bull goes full circle with Ford says Marko

Red Bull’s preparations to defend Max Verstappen’s back-to-back world titles in 2023 are going “smoothly” and “on schedule”. So relaxed is Red Bull that Marko, 79, attended neither the recent New York launch or the Silverstone shakedown. Marko spent time late last season negotiating with Honda over a possible extension of its engine collaboration after 2026, but ultimately decided to align with Ford. Indeed, Marko raced a Ford Capri touring car in the early 70s; Red Bull’s first F1 partnership was with Sauber and Ford in the mid 90s; and the energy drink company ultimately bought Jaguar from the Ford Motor Company. “It was our start in Formula 1 with our own team,” he said.
