Red Bull will continue to receive technical support from Honda in running their Formula 1 power units until the current engine regulations are replaced.

Honda, which became Red Bull’s power unit supplier in 2019, officially withdrew from F1 at the end of last season, despite powering Max Verstappen to the world championship.

Red Bull have built their own power unit production facility at their Milton Keynes base, and Red Bull Powertrains have received support from Honda Racing Corporation in preparing power units for the 2022 season.

That support deal was due to conclude at the end of the 2023 F1 season. However Red Bull and Honda have now agreed an extension which will cover the next two campaigns.

Red Bull will therefore continue to receive assistance from Honda until the current V6 hybrid turbo power unit regulations are replaced in 2026.

“Red Bull’s partnership with Honda has been an incredibly successful one and we are pleased that this will continue until the end of the current era of the FIA’s power unit regulations in 2025,” said team principal Christian Horner.

With nine races left this year, Red Bull lead the constructors championship by 93 points while Verstappen has an 80-point lead in the drivers standings.

The team is pursuing a deal with Porsche to produce a power unit for F1’s new regulations in 2026.
