F1 – Red Bull-Ford agreement is expected!



F1 Red Bull-Ford agreement is expected

Red Bull won’t unveil their 2023 F1 car at their Friday launch event, but speculation is rising about a potential announcement of a partnership with Ford leading American car company.

Red Bull will not unveil its RB19 chassis at its Friday launch event, but instead present the livery for its 2023 Formula 1 season.

However, speculation is increasing that Red Bull will announce a partnership with Ford. The American car manufacturer ended its involvement in Formula 1 in 2004, when it sold its Jaguar team to Red Bull and stopped supplying engines to Jordan.

The Mirror reports that a Red Bull-Ford agreement is expected, with a potential reveal at the team’s launch event. Red Bull established its own powertrains division after Honda’s exit from F1 in 2021, although Honda still produces the power units used by RBPT.

The report notes that it’s uncertain whether Ford’s involvement would be as an engine partner, similar to Audi’s partnership with Sauber, with Audi set to join under the new engine regulations in 2026.

Red Bull established a powertrains division at their Milton Keynes headquarters and will continue collaborating with Honda on engines in 2023. Mark Rushbrook, Ford’s performance head, stated that any entry into the F1 market requires careful consideration. He said to, “Formula 1 is strong and growing, both in the US and worldwide.”

Ford’s potential interest in entering Formula 1 may stem from competitor General Motors’ partnership with Andretti through their Cadillac brand. FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem has started an “expression of interest” process for new teams to join the grid, though any new entrants are unlikely before 2026.
