Marko says Red Bull will only stay in F1 if they can win!

Red Bull Racing need a new power unit supplier in 2022. Honda are preparing to pull the plug on the F1 project, leaving Red Bull Racing in trouble. Rumours are flying around in the paddock about what Red Bull Racing is going to do now. On Monday after the race in Portugal there will be a meeting with the FIA, Liberty Media and the engine manufacturers.

Important meeting about Red Bull's future

What would Red Bull do without an engine? Mercedes is at its limit when it comes to providing power units. Ferrari's engine is underpowered at the moment and Renault and Red Bull don't have the best relationship.

Autobild.de reports that on Monday after the race in Portugal there will be an important meeting between the FIA, Liberty Media and the engine developers about the future of Red Bull Racing. In 2026, a new engine concept will be introduced, which will make it necessary to look at a short-lived partnership.

Difficult choice for Red Bull Racing

The possibility exists that Red Bull will develop its own engine, but the chance is not very great. Helmut Marko said earlier: "We would only develop an engine for the transitional period."

Marko stresses: "We want to stay in F1, but only if we are able to win. If that is not possible - because as a normal customer team (from Renault or Ferrari, ed.) we are too far behind - there is no point in staying".

So on Monday there will be an important discussion, where will have to be decided how the power sources will be distributed. In particular, what Red Bull has left in the deal is crucial for both the team and F1.
