Honda increases presence with Red Bull
Honda has announced that it will increase the branding presence with the Red Bull and AlphaTauri teams for the remainder of the 2022 season.
This includes displaying the Honda logo on the cars starting with the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend.
Koji Watanabe, Head of Corporate Communications Supervisory Unit, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and President of Honda Racing Corporation said "The HRC logo on the nose and Honda logo on the side of the cars of both teams represent the strong ties between Honda and Red Bull Group. Through the technical support provided by HRC, Honda will fully support the challenges those machines take on to become the 'fastest in the world.' We are very pleased that these machines will be unveiled at the F1 Japanese Grand Prix, where Honda serves as the title sponsor. Please root for the two Red Bull Group teams which compete with power units loaded with Honda technologies."
Dr. Helmut Marko, Motorsport Advisor, Oracle Red Bull Racing said "Oracle Red Bull Racing and Honda Racing Corporation have achieved great success in Formula One together. With these new agreements, we are proud to continue going from strength to strength with the technical support from HRC until the next generation of engines are introduced in 2026. We are confident this relationship with HRC will set us up for more success over the next three seasons and thank them for their ongoing support."
Christian Horner, Team Principal and CEO, Oracle Red Bull Racing said "Honda has invested significantly in hybrid technology over the course of our partnership. This has ensured the supply of competitive power units to both teams, for which we are very grateful. Our combined goal is to continue to deliver dominant engines and achieve the most success possible in the following three years. To mark this, we look forward to welcoming the Honda logo back on to the car from Suzuka onwards."

We are very thankful for the hard work from Honda during our time together, allowing us to achieve several podiums as well as Pierre's race win in Monza, and we hope that this success will continue into the future."
