Ford's Unwavering Support for Red Bull Continues

Ford’s Unwavering Support for Red Bull Continues

08/05/2024

Despite Adrian Newey’s upcoming departure, Red Bull continues to secure Ford’s backing, ensuring collaboration on future power units.

The American giant will partner with Red Bull Powertrains starting in 2026, with the blue oval bringing its expertise in hybrid systems to the Red Bull team in developing its power unit.

With Newey’s departure scheduled for the first quarter of 2025, Red Bull will suffer a significant loss within its ranks. Despite this setback, the Austrian team can still count on Ford’s confidence.

The American manufacturer is already featured on the livery of the Red Bull-branded car driven by Amna Al Qubaisi in the F1 Academy.

“We have immense respect for Adrian because of the career he’s had and all he has accomplished for many different teams in F1, especially over the past nineteen years with Red Bull,” said Mark Rushbrook, director of Ford Motorsport, to Autosport.

“We have nothing but admiration and respect for him and wish him the best for everything he will do in the future,” continued Rushbrook.

“However, we are fully focused on the power unit program for 2026. Our agreements with Red Bull remain unchanged despite this news, and our collaboration continues to move forward at full speed,” he insisted.
