Honda's withdrawal from F1 may not mean that Red Bull's two teams need a new engine supplier, Honda F1 managing director Masashi Yamamoto (Masashi Yamamoto) made the above hint.
Yamamoto said to "The Race": "If they have anything that needs us, Honda is happy to talk to them, not only about the power unit, but also other aspects. In order to support Red Bull's post-2021 project in any way , We are happy to cooperate. As Honda, we have got a lot from the team, so we hope to return the future in a beautiful way."
Yamamoto对《 The Race》说：“如果他们有任何需要我们的东西，本田很高兴与他们交谈，不仅涉及动力装置，还涉及其他方面。为了以任何方式支持Red Bull的2021年后项目，我们很高兴能合作。作为本田，我们从车队中得到了很多东西，因此我们希望以美好的方式回报未来。”
When asked whether this means that Honda will be open to Red Bull's further development of its own V6 turbo hybrid engine, Yamamoto said: "If the team makes such a request, I will be ready to talk to the Japanese headquarters. I personally hope Support as much as possible."
If Red Bull continues to research and develop with Honda's foundation and support, they can basically maintain the attributes of a "factory team", although this requires a lot of time, capital and infrastructure investment, which may also be better used elsewhere.
Anyway, Yamamoto reiterated that his goal is still to help the Red Bull team win the championship in 2021, and to ensure that his engine team will not slow down.
He said: "This year we have seven games to go, and next year we have a lot of things to do. Next year we will work hard for the championship and draw a successful conclusion to our story. Next year, we will not start from our Reduce anyone in the project. We will develop more. We will do our best to win as many games as possible. We will continue to the end."
