A Red Bull with four rings?

In Germany they say that the energy drink brand is negotiating a partnership with Audi from 2025, something that annoyed Honda.


White smoke. This was the column of smoke that could be observed coming out this Thursday from the Red Bull factory in the county of Buckinghamshire (United Kingdom). The Formula 1 Commission unanimously approved, although only a simple majority was needed, the freezing of power units from 2022 to 2025, the only condition that the energy drink brand had imposed to continue in the Great Circus after reaching an agreement with Honda to stay, on a rental basis, with Sakura's powertrain technology and personnel.

A pact that from Germany reveal that it was not easy to reach. 'Auto Motor und Sport' points out that the leadership of the Japanese manufacturer did not like the rumors that the Milton Keynes team was negotiating with Audi to start a collaboration within four seasons. Information that caused the Japanese to impose as a non-negotiable condition to maintain the intellectual property of the patents and the developments of its engine, as it has finally happened.

Audi's interest made negotiations difficult between Red Bull and Honda

"The negotiations initially did not go very well. Based on our information, Honda wanted to ensure that the data and design details were not passed on to third parties or future engine partners. Apparently, Word spread to Tokyo that Audi is interested in entering the Formula 1 World Championship from 2025 through a collaboration with Red Bull, "reports the country's central European magazine.

It should be noted that this is not the first time that the possible entry of the brand with the four interlocking rings has been discussed. "I want to be careful with my comments. I do not know if the Volkswagen Group has the real intention of competing in Formula 1. If it really is so, I can only welcome you to Formula 1", has come to declare Jean Todt, president of the International Automobile Federation (FIA). We will see if the introduction of biofuel to achieve carbon neutrality is, in the end, the measure that ends up convincing the Ingolstadt brand.
