Honda Sets UK Base for F1 2026 Return with Aston


Honda Racing Corporation establishes a UK subsidiary, HRC UK, to gear up for its F1 comeback as a power unit supplier in 2026, enhancing its partnership with Aston Martin F1.

Honda will officially return to F1 as a power unit supplier from 2026 – when the new engine regulations come into effect – partnering with Aston Martin F1.

The Japanese manufacturer has been the engine supplier for Red Bull since 2019, and its advancements over the years have been integral to the team’s current successes and Max Verstappen’s achievements.

However, Honda decided to exit F1 shortly before Verstappen’s first championship and subsequent dominance, only to announce its return for the new regulations.

Red Bull and RB F1 continue to use their engines, now rebranded as Honda RBPT.

As preparations for 2026 are underway, Honda has formed a new subsidiary – HRC UK.

“Honda Racing Corporation has established a new subsidiary, Honda Racing Corporation UK Ltd. (HRC UK), in the United Kingdom.”

“This new entity has been set up primarily to perform maintenance and post-race preparation tasks on F1 power units built by Honda (in Sakura, Japan), while also serving as a logistical base for the European region.”

“The establishment of HRC UK will further enhance Honda’s operational efficiency in support of the partnership with Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team starting from the 2026 season.”

“Following the establishment of the new company in the UK, HRC will begin recruiting engineers, technicians, and staff members for the new company starting this spring 2024.”
