Since Red Bull made the agreement with Honda to collaborate with Red Bull Powertrains to make the engines, the cars of both, Red Bull and Alpha Tauri have stopped sporting the Japanese car company's logo. However, from next weekend, at the Japanese GP onwards, the cars of these teams (RB18 and AT03 respectively) will once again have the Honda logo on them.

Along with this change, it has also been announced that Mexican driver Sergio Pérez will be an ambassador for the Honda Racing School.

The top management of the respective parties have commented on how they feel about strengthening ties.

Helmut Marko, Red Bull's Motorsport Advisor, said he was proud to be able to continue working with Honda on the development of the engines that will be introduced in 2026: 

“Oracle Red Bull Racing and Honda Racing Corporation have achieved great success in Formula One together. With these new agreements, we are proud to continue going from strength to strength with the technical support from HRC until the next generation of engines are introduced in 2026. We are confident this relationship with HRC sets us up for more success over the next three seasons and thank them for their ongoing support.”

For his part, Christian Horner, Team Principal and CEO of Oracle Red Bull Racing also expressed his gratitude towards Honda: "Honda has invested significantly in hybrid technology over the course of our partnership. This has ensured the supply of competitive power units to both teams, for which we are very grateful. Our combined goal is to continue to deliver dominant engines and achieve the most success possible in the following three years. To mark this, we look forward to welcoming the Honda logo back on to the car from Suzuka onwards."

As well as the heads of Red Bull, Franz Tost, Team Principal of Scuderia AlphaTauri spoke about the relationship that his team has had with HRC:  “Over the years we have developed an amazing working relationship with Honda and it’s great to be continuing to strengthen this with a variety of activities, including displaying the iconic logo on the car once again, starting from the Japanese Grand Prix. We are very thankful for the hard work from Honda during our time together, allowing us to achieve several podiums as well as Pierre’s race win in Monza, and we hope that this success will continue into the future."

Not only the F1 teams principals spoke about this relationship, the Head of Corporate Communications Supervisory Unit Honda Motor Co. Ltd. and the President of Honda Racing Corporation, Koji Watanabe, said that Honda is “very pleased” to have strong ties with the teams:  "The HRC logo on the nose and Honda logo on the side of the cars of both teams represents the strong ties between Honda and Red Bull Group. Through the technical support provided by HRC, Honda will fully support the challenges those machines take on to become the “fastest in the world”. We are very please that these machines will be unveiled at the F1 Japanese Grand Prix where Honda serves as the title sponsor.” Also, the Japanese executive encouraged the people to support the teams that Honda has ties with: “Please root for the new two Red Bull Group team which compete with power units loaded with Honda technologies."
