We are confident this relationship with HRC will set us up for more success in the future and thank them for their ongoing support."

"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."

"The HRC logo on the nose and Honda logo on the side of the race machines of both teams represent the strong ties between Honda and Red Bull Group," said Koji Watanabe, Head of Corporate Communications Supervisory Unit, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and President of Honda Racing Corporation. "Through the technical support provided by HRC, Honda will fully support the challenges those machines take on to become the 'fastest in the world'.
