Taking over Honda engine is preferred solution says Marko

Dr Helmut Marko says Red Bull’s preferred solution for 2022 is to take over the intellectual property of Honda’s power unit and go it alone as a works engine supplier. “The engine has always been their Achilles heel,” he said. “We get the engine and have to build our chassis around it. But for that, some parameters are required – such as frozen engine regulations from 2022.”. Marko said Red Bull will therefore commence talks not only with Honda, but with F1’s authorities. “Assuming the talks go well, we would prefer to take over the Honda base and everything else and then prepare the engines in Milton Keynes,” he said. With a development freeze and the Honda engine, Marko says Red Bull can be competitive.
