Direct success with Honda
“This agreement represents a significant step for Red Bull in its Formula One journey. We were understandably disappointed when Honda made the decision to leave the sport as an engine manufacturer, as our relationship yielded immediate success, but we are grateful for their support in facilitating this new agreement," Horner said in a press release from the team.
"Honda has invested significantly in hybrid technology to ensure the supply of competitive power units to both teams. We now begin the work of bringing the power unit division in-house and integrating the new facilities and personnel into our Technology Campus," the 47-year-old Brit continued.
Leaving F1 with a bang
Before Honda says goodbye to the sport and Red Bull takes over the technologies, Horner is keen to conclude the collaboration with the Japanese brand on a high point. "In the meantime, we are fully focused on achieving the best possible results in what will be Honda’s final season as an official power unit supplier," he concluded.
