Red Bull is looking hard for a partner for the period from 2026. New engine regulations are in force at the time and the Austrian team has yet to find a suitable partner. Porsche was close to striking a deal with Red Bull, but disagreements over control within the team threw a wrench in the works. Honda is also still a competitor, but it looks like they want to go in a different direction. In recent months, Ford has come into the picture and in the aisles rumors have become increasingly persistent that the American marque may become the new partner of Red Bull.
