Honda to increase Power Unit TECH SUPPORT TEAM Agreement with Red Bull Power Trains to get rid of of 2025

TOKYO, Aug 3, 2022 – (JCN Newswire) – Following discussions between Red Bull and Honda, it’s been agreed by both parties that Honda Racing Corporation (HRC), the Honda subsidiary that runs its racing activities, will continue steadily to provide tech support team for Red Bull Powertrains (RBPT) associated with Formula 1 power units from 2023 to the finish of 2025.

In 2022, HRC has been providing PU-related tech support team consistent with Red Bull’s request to Honda, with both Oracle Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri therefore utilizing the PU from the support program.

Dr. Helmut Marko, Motorsport Advisor, Oracle Red Bull Racing:

“We thank Honda for his or her positive reaction to working together. We have been excited to keep our partnership in F1 before end of 2025 with the PU given by Honda. We’ve had an effective relationship up to now, winning the Drivers’ championship in 2021 and currently leading the Drivers’ and Teams’ classifications, with the purpose of securing both 2022 titles.”

Christian Horner, Red Bull Powertrains CEO and Team Principal:

“Red Bull’s partnership with Honda has been a remarkably successful one and we have been pleased that will continue before end of the existing era of the FIA’s power unit regulations in 2025.”

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and President of Honda Racing Corporation:

“We’ve decided to continue supporting Red Bull Power Trains in Formula 1 through HRC, following Red Bull’s request to increase our current agreement, which HRC can meet within its existing resources. Once more, we try to use our involvement in the pinnacle of motorsport for the development of technologies and of our workforce.”
