Red Bull bids farewell to Honda with special livery in final races

Honda is saying goodbye (again) to Formula 1 at the end of this season. It is Honda's fourth term in the premier class of motorsport. Honda returned to McLaren as an engine supplier in 2015 and switched to Toro Rosso in 2018. It joined Red Bull Racing in 2019.

Special livery as a thank you

The cooperation between Red Bull and Honda was excellent. In Austria the team achieved their first victory with the Honda engine and this season Max Verstappen is battling it out with Lewis Hamilton for the world title. Honda might leave Formula 1 with a world title in their pocket.

With a video posted to Twitter, Red Bull Racing now appears to be hinting at a special livery to mark the departure of Honda. The video, which is not very revealing, says 'arigato', which is Japanese for 'thank you'. According to Decalspotters earlier today a game build was added to the F1 2021 game called Special Red Bull Livery which was removed immediately afterwards. Also, Red Bull Racing's profile pictures have changed from the familiar dark blue to white. So what and when exactly Red Bull is planning remains to be seen, but it's sure to be something good.
