What will Red Bull do? If a month ago things seemed practically set for a deal with Porsche from the 2026 season, things are different. Red Bull’s course took a different path. Honda made a new proposal to the Austrian group and created doubts about the alliance with Porsche.

The information is from the English journalist Joe Saward, experienced in the coverage of Formula 1. According to him, the paddock is already starting to say that the business with Porsche could die on the beach. The reason was a better financial proposal on the part of Honda.

Last weekend, in Belgium, Audi officially announced the entry into Formula 1 in 2026. The expectation is that the German automaker closes an agreement with Sauber, already in advance, to acquire 75% of the shares of the group and to have control of a F1 team. Even so, he has already guaranteed that he will enter the category next year.

During the press conference in the Spa-Francorchamps paddock, Audi chief executive Markus Duesmann reiterated that the Audi and Porsche operations, despite being two companies of the Volkswagen Group, will have separate operations in F1. And, as expected, Porsche and Red Bull plan to conduct work in separate locations.

Porsche does not want to take control of an F1 team, as Audi intends, and has lined up a deal with Red Bull to acquire 50% of the shares in the team that left until official document. The practical participation would be to build the entire hybrid and electric part of the engine, using more sophisticated technology, in Germany. The energy company would continue to produce the internal combustion engines at the newly created Red Bull Powertrains, at the factory where the rest of the team is based, in England.

Honda, however, was interested in the new engine guidelines for the 2026 season and opened their hearts to return to the series. Even with the danger of Porsche lurking around Red Bull, renewed the technical partnership agreement with the Austrian team until 2025. He even received a negative from Red Bull for the 2026 partnership – the team offered a deal with AlphaTauri, but Honda refused.

The issue has now changed. Honda returned to invest in a proposal and, apparently, Red Bull began to consider it viable to give up Porsche.
