Since the 2016 season, Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing have been working together. The sports car manufacturer's logo can be seen on Red Bull's Formula 1 cars. The Red Bull employees also helped with the construction of the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

As of 2018, Aston Martin has become the main sponsor of Red Bull. The name Red Bull Racing has also been changed to Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and the name Aston Martin got more prominent places on the car. What is striking is that Aston Martin's streetcars mostly drive with Mercedes technology, while Red Bull ran with Renault engines until 2018 and switched to Honda since 2019.
