Austrian Formula One team Red Bull said on Tuesday that it is extending its agreement with Honda for engine development until 2025. This comes after Honda officially left the F1 at the end of last season. However, the two companies signed a deal where Honda has agreed to continue providing technical assistance for engine development to Red Bull and its sister team Alpha Tauri as well, claims AFP in a report.

Meanwhile, the FIA will soon decide on the new engine rules for Formula One that will come into effect in 2026. As the report suggests, Red Bull is currently in discussions with Porsche for technological collaboration. The two companies are reportedly in discussion with a view to an agreement that could lead to the German luxury car manufacturer under the umbrella of Volkswagen AG taking a stake in the Austrian F1 team and becoming a technological collaborator from 2026.
