Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen and his Red Bull team can continue to rely on Honda’s technical support until the end of 2025.
The racing team extended its expiring partnership with the former engine supplier by three years, as announced by Red Bull. New engine regulations will take effect in Formula 1 for 2026, and speculation suggests that Porsche could become a partner at Red Bull.
Honda left the racing series at the end of 2021 because of the high costs as an engine builder. Red Bull uses the previously developed fundamentals to build its own engine unit, while still receiving technical help from the Japanese car giant.
After Verstappen won the driver’s world championship last season, the racing team is well on the way to winning the constructors’ title in addition to the Dutchman’s second world championship triumph this year.
