    Cosworth is its own thing now, is it not?

    They do engines and electrical components for all sorts of manufacturers now.

    I think they always were, only that they hit gold in the sixties with all the support they got from Hank the Deuce.

    Anyway, tonight (GMT) is the RB livery launch.

    I'm growing more convinced that Liberty should just get all the teams together and do an Oscars type event, closer to the start of preseason testing so that all the DTS fans go all oooh aaah over the newness and buy a lot of shit and the teams all get very rich and we old geezers can have some comfort in a few more noisy cars going around in circles for a few more years.
    acket.

    But the most convoluted circles ever.

    Not sure if the RBR reveal was cut and paste from last year.

    I will say the blue oval will clash with the current color scheme...going to have to spend some money on a redesign at some point.

    What's there to clash? Just use white oval and white text should work, right?

    So I guess Ford has beaten Porsche and GM to get on the F1 grid come 2026...

    So is this deal just the former Honda engine department, now owned by Red Bull and rebadged as Ford?

    Iíve been seeing hyperbolic headlines pointing out that Ford succeeded where Porsche failed, but it seems to me like Porsche wanted full control over engine development.

    Porsche wanted full control over the team, more or less. Red Bull said "Fuck that noise".
    Exactly the same reply Audi got from Mclaren.

    Ford will probably badge the former Honda Engine dept. now Red Bull bla bla. Alpha Tauri as well.
    That leaves me wonder... what will Honda do in 2026 since they have joined the F1 2026 rules as one of six engine manufacturers?

    Mercedes will keep being Mercedes.
    Red Bull and Alpha Tauri will be with Ford badged engines.
    Sauber will become Audi F1 team with, duh, Audi engines.
    Ferrari will be as always Ferrari. Haas still a satellite team?
    Mclaren most probably will keep being Mercedes - surely not going to be Honda again. And a stern no to Audi would be followed by a stern no to Porsche in case they would want to buy them.
    Alpine will keep being Alpine (Renault). Are they going to find a new satellite team or being alone again?

    What about Aston Martin and Williams? Still Mercedes powered?
    Andretti albeit having Cadillac as a sponsor won't be powered by a Cadillac engine... so who would be up to the task? Ferrari? Alpine? Honda because of their Indycar ties?
