Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) will support a freeze on F1 engine restrictions starting in Y 2022, team Boss Mattia Binotto said Thursday, which enables Red Bull to use their Honda power units even after the Japanese manufacturer leaves the sport.
Honda (NYSE:HON) which exclusively supplies Red Bull and team AlphaTauri, is set to bow out of F1 at the end of the 2021 season leaving the 2 racer firms looking for a new supply.
Red Bull’s best option is to acquire the IP of the Honda power unit and continue using it for its 2 teams. But they have said that would only be financially viable if expensive engine development was frozen.
Ferrari had been against the move to freeze engines even as rivals Mercedes, who have won every championship since the current engine rules were introduced in Y 2014, have supported it.
But after meetings with the sport’s commercial rights holder and the governing FIA, Boss Binotto said The Scuderia had changed its mind provided the introduction of a new power unit, whose details are yet to be worked out, is brought forward a year from Y 2026 to 2025.
“At Ferrari we understand the situation,” Boss Binotto told reporters at the Bahrain Grand Prix in a video conference from Ferrari’s HQ in Maranello.
“We are supportive in trying to anticipate by 1 season, year, the freezing of the engines. That will mean as well trying to anticipate to 2025 the new regulations for the power units.“
