Aston Martin Considering Engine Supplier Role in Formula 1

Aston Martin Considering Engine Supplier Role in Formula 1

We don't know! But Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner is willing to say who it won't be, or so he says. "If we get a reasonable regulation that brings down the cost of the engine, Aston would like to be involved in the engine", added the Briton.

"Our partnership with Aston Martin continues to thrive and there will be further developments in this regard", said Horner.

When asked if Aston might build an engine for Red Bull, Horner answered: "They can't do that now, so it would have to be for 2021".

With Honda leaving McLaren for Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso, that deal allows Red Bull to evaluate the Japanese manufacturer's performance next season with a view to subsequently using their engines too. "But if there is a way of making it work, I think the sport would be a lot richer".

The company is now owned mainly by Kuwaiti and Italian investors and is seeking to boost its share of USA markets. When you look at who attended the engine meeting just before the summer, Cosworth were there.

He said , "Yet in recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement". Yesterday, the president criticized the United Nations like the dealmaker he is, railing on its organizational structure.

"Coming here, I really felt the package we were coming with (a win) was a realistic goal of ours that we thought we could achieve", said Ricciardo, who was targeting a dominant weekend for Red Bull.

Aston Martin, a 104-year-old firm whose road cars have become closely associated with fictional British secret agent James Bond, last competed in Formula One in 1960.

Whether Aston Martin eventually enters the sport for good in 2021 will depend on the new engine regulations-and Palmer seemed to hint that lower costs, complexity, and no MGU-H technology was the way to go to draw them in. "That's not beyond the realms of possibility".

Formula One next heads to Malaysia, where Ricciardo led Verstappen in a one-two a year ago, after Lewis Hamilton retired his Mercedes from a comfortable lead with a blown engine. And if Red Bull took Honda in 2019 there's a clear branding conflict with Aston Martin. We've got a great relationship with Aston, obviously working on and developing the Valkyrie hypercar for them.
