    Default Aston Martin in F1

    Red Bull team name will become Aston Martin Red Bull Racing

    Rumour has it that Aston Martin could become engine manufacturer in F1 (2019?). Given that Renault are said to be ending their association with Red Bull after 2018, now that they will have McLaren as their client from next year and past bad blood between Renault and red Bull.

    Red Bull's potential engine supplier list is rather short given that Mercedes has refused to supply Red Bull in the past and Ferrari are unlikely to be prepared to supply Red Bull with current spec engines. Honda engines are neither competitive or reliable. This could get interesting again, more drama off track than on.

    With all due respect, F1 engine rules are an absolute minefield and are expected to change again in maybe 2020. Unless it is known now what the changes are up the road I can't see Aston Martin getting into F1 engines just yet. Perhaps Red Bull could buy engines from Honda and call them Aston Martin. Y'know, like Tag Heur.....
    It's another lovely day! Again!

    Given Toro Rosso will be using Honda engines from 2018, Red Bull should have inside low down on Honda engines before end of next year. Perhaps they are trying to spread their eggs across more than one basket.
