Honda set to team up with Aston Martin in Formula 1

Honda has teamed up with Aston Martin as their engine partner and is set to return in a formal capacity in 2026. The company currently provides engines for the two Red Bull teams through a power unit support deal, which ends in 2025.
Following the revelation of new engine regulations by the F1 for 2026, Honda’s future was uncertain as Red Bull decided to pursue their own path with their in-house power unit division, assisted by the American car brand, Ford. The Japanese car giant decided to partner up with Aston Martin. As of now, Mercedes will continue to supply power units, gearboxes, and rear suspension to Aston Martin until the end of 2025.
As per the official F1 website, Honda CEO Toshihiro Mibe is excited about the new partnership and stated that his company is aiming towards carbon neutrality. “One of the key reasons for our decision to take up the new challenge in F1 is that the world’s pinnacle form of racing is striving to become a sustainable racing series, which is in line with the direction Honda is aiming towards carbon neutrality, and it will become a platform that will facilitate the development of our electrification technologies,” Mibe was quoted as saying by Formula 1.
The racing division that will lead the project is Honda Racing Corporation. The group is headed by Koji Watanabe, president of Honda Racing Corporation.
