Red Bull says its preferred option for Formula 1 engines in 2022 is to take over the Honda project and run the power units itself.

"Everything has been settled between us. The timing is there," Marko, who is close to Red Bull's billionaire owner Dietrich Mateschitz, told German publication Auto Motor und Sport.

"But there is only an OK when we have written proof from the (governing) FIA ​​that the development stop on the engine side is coming.

The current V6 turbo hybrid power units are due to be replaced in 2025 and the cost of continuing development would be beyond all but the major manufacturers.

Honda are partners to both Red Bull and sister team AlphaTauri. Renault have only their own factory outfit.
