It has been clear for a while that there will be no collaboration between Red Bull Racing and Porsche. Gerhard Berger previously called it a super prospect, but now still thinks the break-up is for the best.

After it seemed that a partnership between Red Bull and Porsche from 2026 was imminent, talks broke down as no deal could be reached. Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said it came after reports that the German manufacturer wanted to buy a 50 percent stake in the team instead of just being an engine supplier. According to Horner, this showed that the two companies do not fit together.

Understandable choice Horner

Berger was previously very positive about the proposal of a partnership between Red Bull and Porsche, but now says he understands where Horner is coming from, and believes it was the right decision. "It’s always better to take a step back before getting married because it’s usually a lot more complicated afterwards", the former F1 driver told the Austria Press Agency, according to PlanetF1. Finally, he added: "It’s like in life – you meet a friend, go out with her a few times. It can happen that it’s nothing for life afterwards.”
