Red Bull to race as 'Aston Martin Red Bull' from 2018

Red Bull to race as 'Aston Martin Red Bull' from 2018”

"Title partnership is the next logical step for our Innovation Partnership with Red Bull Racing". Right now they're "evaluating the opportunity" to be involved in the team's power unit from 2021 after being asked by the FIA to join discussions on future engines for F1.

Two years ago the famous Red Bull F1 Team was officially called "Infiniti Red Bull Racing" as part of a major sponsorship with the vehicle brand.

Aston Martin has today announced that it will become the title sponsor for Red Bull Racing from next year - meaning that one of Britain's most venerated brands will return to the Formula One paddock as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in March.

Aston Martin will also be opening a new technical development centre at Red Bull's Milton Keynes HQ, housing a second dedicated design centre and engineering staff who will work on future Aston Martin road cars. "Having conceived and created the remarkably successful Valkyrie together in 2016, we extended our relationship this year and are now delighted to further strengthen the Partnership".

The technical partnership will also see a new Advanced Performance Centre being established at Red Bull Racing's campus later this year, enabling a closer working relationship between the two parties on both F1 and road auto technology. By 2021, that could mean supplying the team's engines. Since the beginning of the V6 turbo era Red bull has been searching, unsuccessfully, for an alternative engine supply after several hard years with Renault. In that time, the F1 team has carried the iconic wings badge on the nose and sidepods of the RB12 and RB13 cars, and worked together with Aston Martin to create the Valkyrie hypercar.

Yes, Third Base is an Aston engine, but the new power unit regulations for F1 are not yet set, and this deal could be seen as a clear sign to F1 bosses that they need to get that right if they really want more auto brands on the grid. The British firm, run by Mario Illien, used to build Mercedes' F1 engines before that part of the business was taken over by the German firm.

Aston Martin Valkyrie: what's next?

"Our Innovation Partnership with Aston Martin has been a pioneering project from day one". Let us know below.
