"Initially, the intention was that Honda would only deliver our engines for 2022, but it has now been decided that this will last until 2025. This is of course a huge advantage for us and means that we only have to do the fine tuning and calibrations ourselves."
Great to hear! I wonder what it means for the branding situation? Any chance for the Honda motor home?
It would be nice to see Honda logos at least on the nosecone and engine cover, as a customer power unit relationship.
Verstappen's helmet was revealed without any Honda logos, but I guess that can be changed easily.
It is curious that Marko notes RB powertrains will be doing their own engine mapping...?
For now, Red Bull is the engine supplier on the entry list: https://www.fia.com/events/fia-formula- ... ship-entry

"The engine will be branded as a Red Bull engine," Horner confirmed, but said that Honda's presence is likely to be acknowledged.
"We still have an affiliation of branding which will be announced later in the season. They won't be totally invisible."
When Horner talks of an 'affiliation' later in the season, he probably means a red & white Suzuka livery?
