Helmut Marko hopes that Red Bull Racing wants to find a partner in terms of developing a power unit after engine freeze.

The 2022 season will mark a new era in Formula 1 as the engine freeze will be implemented. The teams that benefit from it are Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri as the engine freeze will help them stay in contention even after Honda’s departure from the sport. However, Red Bull is looking beyond the freeze period and its advisor Helmut Marko has spoken about their intentions after 2024, which includes acquiring a partner, which in fact can be Volkswagen.

“When we talk about a company, there are a lot of them that we can consider. In the past we talked with Volkswagen – sometimes for a lomger time, sometimes not so much. That’s routine. Nothing has been decided”, Marko told Motorsport-Total.

As of now, Red Bull Racing is fully concentrated developing the engines with newly-created Red Bull Powertrains Limited in the upcoming three seasons.
