According to the announcement, Honda returned to F1 with McLaren in 2015, and the two sides parted ways after three difficult and failed seasons. Honda chose to cooperate with red bull in 2018, and officially LED red bull in the next year.
The cooperation between Honda and Red Bull system is quite successful. In the two and a half years of cooperation, so far, it has won five F1 Grand Prix. Honda, however, has decided not to continue and will formally bid farewell to F1 at the end of 2021 after ending their contracts with red bull and Red Bull II.
Honda said it made the decision because the auto industry was undergoing a once-in-a-century transformation and that they chose to leave to be able to achieve its goal of winning..
Honda will continue to cooperate with red bull and Red Bull team II, try their best to participate in the competition and strive for more victories by the end of 2021 season, Honda said in the exit statement.
Hondas exit means F1 will have three remaining power unit suppliers: Mercedes, Ferrari and Renault. According to the current rules, unless the two teams can persuade Mercedes or Ferrari to provide power units, Renault will have to provide engines to red bull and red bull, because Renault currently has the least number of customers.
After the signing of the Concord agreement, red bull and Red Bull II will remain in F1 at least until the end of 2025. We look forward to entering a new era of innovation, development and success. Now, we will take the time to evaluate and find the most competitive power unit solutions for 2022 and beyond. (end)
