Red Bull Racing Honda F1 Team

Red Bull Racing, also simply known as Red Bull or RBR, is a Formula One racing team, racing a Honda-powered car under an Austrian licence and based in the United Kingdom. It is one of two Formula One teams owned by beverage company Red Bull GmbH, the other being Scuderia AlphaTauri (previously Scuderia Toro Rosso). The Red Bull Racing team has been managed by Christian Horner since its formation in 2005.Red Bull had Cosworth engines in 2005 and Ferrari engines in 2006. The team used engines supplied by Renault between 2007 and 2018 (from 2016 to 2018, the Renault engine was rebadged following the breakdown in the relationship between Red Bull and Renault in 2015).During this partnership, they won four successive Drivers and Constructors Championship titles from 2010 to 2013, becoming the first Austrian team to win the title. The team began using Honda engines in 2019.The works Honda partnership culminated in 2021, when they won the World Drivers’ Championship. Following Honda’s exit from Formula One as a works entity after 2021, the team will take over the operation of the Honda power units through Red Bull Powertrains and continue racing them after a freeze on development.Following Honda’s withdrawal as a works entity after 2021, an engine development freeze lobbied by Red Bull allowed them to sign a deal with Honda to use their engines until the end of 2024. To maintain the engines, they formed a company named Red Bull Powertrains Limited and took over part of Honda’s Milton Keynes facility.Despite their withdrawal, Honda will develop and manufacture a power unit for the 2022 season – which will then be used up to the end of 2024 and offer assistance.
