LONDON (REUTERS) - Red Bull have formed their own powertrain company and will race from 2022 with engines using Honda technology, the Formula One team said on Monday (Feb 15).

Honda, who currently provide engines to Red Bull Racing and sister team AlphaTauri, are leaving the sport as a power unit manufacturer at the end of the 2021 season.
