Aston Martin is set to become the title and innovation partner of Red Bull Racing in 2018.
Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing's partnership looks set to go from strength to strength after the recent wave of announcements from the teams. Firstly, they announced plans to open an Advanced Performance Centre, which will not only create 110 jobs, but will be home to Aston Martin's second design centre and will be the site to create future sports cars from.
The second main announcement comes in the form of a title change, being that the F1 team will compete as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing from 2018. Speaking of the new ventures, Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing said: “Our Innovation Partnership with Aston Martin has been a pioneering project from day one. Having conceived and created the remarkably successful Valkyrie together in 2016, we extended our relationship this year and are now delighted to further strengthen the Partnership and see the team competing as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in 2018. In addition, more than 100 Aston Martin staff will service the new Advanced Performance Centre on our campus here in Milton Keynes and it will allow us to collaborate further with Aston Martin on special, equally innovative, new projects.”
