Honda To Supply Power Units To Aston Martin F1 Team In 2026

MANILA: Honda made intentions to supply Power Units for the FIA Formula One World Championship (F1) starting in the 2026 season. For the 2026 Formula One season, Honda has agreed to enter into a works relationship with the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team to provide power units that comply with the revised F1 power unit regulations.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are the new regulations on the F1 Power Units in 2026?

    Starting with the 2026 season, F1 will implement new rules with a maximum engine/electric motor power output ratio of 50/50 in an effort to reach carbon neutrality by 2030.
  • Starting with the 2026 season, F1 will implement new rules with a maximum engine/electric motor power output ratio of 50/50 in an effort to reach carbon neutrality by 2030. In comparison to the current ratio, this will represent a huge increase in the deployment of electrical power, and it is also necessary to employ a fuel that is entirely sustainable.

    In particular, the 2026 requirements demand a decrease in engine output while tripling the output of the Energy Recovery System (ERS), which turns kinetic energy into electrical energy in specific circumstances, such as braking. As a result, the engine and motor will produce their maximum amount of power, which will be about equal.

    These modifications to the F1 power unit regulations are in line with Honda's efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. Respecting these rules will be extremely vital for giving Honda the chance to pursue the development of upcoming technologies in that manner. Honda decided to enter the F1 racing world on the basis of this conviction.

    From 2022, the Honda Racing Corporation (HRC), which is now in charge of both motorcycle and automobile motorsports, will also be in charge of managing F1 racing and developing power units as well as participating in races.

    “One of the key reasons for our decision to take up the new challenge in F1 is that the world’s pinnacle form of racing is striving to become a sustainable racing series, which is in line with the direction Honda is aiming toward carbon neutrality, and it will become a platform which will facilitate the development of our electrification technologies,” Honda Global CEO Toshihiro Mibe said.

    “With the new 2026 regulations, the key for winning will be a compact, lightweight, and high-power electric motor with a high-performance battery capable of handling high and swift power output, as well as the energy management technology. We believe that the technologies and know-how gained from this new challenge can potentially be applied directly to our future mass production electric vehicles, such as an electric flagship sports model, and electrification technologies in various areas, including eVTOL which is currently under research and development.”

    “I would like to welcome Honda and HRC to the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team. We share a mutual drive, determination, and relentless ambition to succeed on track. Honda is a global titan and its success in motorsport is longstanding and incredibly impressive,” expressed Executive Chairman of Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team Lawrence Stroll.
