2017-12-02 Honda will supply engines exclusively to the Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso.
“Right now, we're working hard with Honda to make this a competitive package with Toro Rosso,” Helmut Marko said.“We are very pleased with the progress Honda is making and will continue to make until the start of the season. It is the strongest sign yet that, with Red Bull's Renault engine deal ending after 2018, a Red Bull-Honda marriage for 2019 is probable. For example with the facilities that Red Bull Technology has. Red Bull will then stand back and track the progress of the Toro Rosso-Honda package next year. We'll take a look, and only then can I say in the middle of next year what we're going to do.
