McLaren is not in talks with Red Bull about engines

In early 2023, McLaren Racing CEO Zach Brown visited Red Bull’s base in Milton Keynes to discuss a potential supply of the powertrain from the 2026 season. Rob Marshall’s recent switch from Red Bull Racing to McLaren sparked a flurry of rumors that McLaren would indeed switch to new Red Bull-Ford engines, but team boss Andrea Stella from Woking denied this.

Andrea Stella: “I can confirm that there is no connection between signing a contract with Rob and working with Red Bull. In fact, a few months ago we were in talks with Red Bull as part of a comprehensive study of powertrain market proposals for the 2026 season.

At the moment we are quite advanced in the negotiations with HPP [Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains]so we have no talks with Red Bull.”
