As planned,Red Bull and Honda had some talks during Spanish GP.
Honda motorsport boss yamamoto said it would take more time to get the deal done.
"Red Bull is a top team,and they won the Baku GP this year too.So of course they want to make sure if they can win with our engine,and then make the decision.For honda,we also need to consider if we are well prepared to supply such a top team.”
It seems Renault finally agreed Red Bull to make the decision after Canada GP.
all eyes on Canada then :wink:
its 10 June less than a month you would imagine they should put the updated PU on tomorrow test
i believe they already said so with the new ideas quote...
It Tolls for Thee.

Honda names key factors in Red Bull 2019 F1 engine talks

Honda motorsport boss Masashi Yamamoto met with Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko in Spain last weekend as Red Bull evaluates whether to end its long-running relationship with current engine supplier Renault to become Honda's works team.

Renault has outlined its concerns about Red Bull's desire to wait until June, at the earliest, to make a decision, with the FIA's formal but flexible deadline this week.

Yamamoto told Autosport Honda is happy to take its time to consider expanding to supply two teams for the first time since returning to F1 in 2015.

"We regard it as a positive thing, giving us time means we have time to consult more," he said.
"We are very positive. To deal with Red Bull is a really big thing for Honda, because they are a top team.
"This gives us a sort of pressure as an engine manufacturer.
"We have to consider many aspects very well, can we really deal with Red Bull's size?
"We have to feel the responsibility to supply the engine."


Yamamoto acknowledged that as well as being a natural next step for Honda's engine programme, a second team also gives it a "better opportunity" to promote one of its junior drivers to F1.

Yamamoto also said Honda must be sure it will not be overstretched by a Red Bull deal, "especially" at its Sakura research and development facility.

Honda has been preparing for an expansion by increasing its staff and considering how to structure its grand prix staff, which Yamamoto said is helped by Red Bull and Toro Rosso being sister teams.

He described it as making the organisation more "compact" on a management level, although technical input would remain separate.

Technical director Toyoharu Tanabe would likely become head of the overall trackside operation, with individual project leaders for each team reporting to him.

Partnering with Red Bull, which is still winning races with Renault, would end Honda's brief spell out of the spotlight since its tough McLaren union ended.

"It was difficult with McLaren, but it was also a very good experience," Yamamoto said. "They gave us very precious experience as a partner.
"We are now having another experience with Toro Rosso, which is very good.
"If we are going to be with Red Bull, we don't think we'll be together like McLaren.
"I don't think we'll have the same situation."

I wonder if the expanded 'Red Bull Technology center' features in this at all?
They currently make things like gear box etc, so could take some load from Honda or at least supply 'space' to progress it?
Anyone have inside info, or whispers on this?
Can I make a 3D printer on my 3D printer?

Honda hasn't made any gearbox right? RBR and STR (RBT) design and build their gearboxes themselves.

But I think RBR Honda would make a good match. Honda has learned from McLaren that they need to demand some engine space and they (RBR and Honda) need to focus on how to improve the compromises from both sides.
Renault "just" supplies an engine and you gotta deal with their measurements. With Honda onboard you can design the ultimate combination together... we will probably never figure out why McLaren didn't think about that....
