Fresh off the announcement of Andretti hoping to join the F1 grid with GM, Ford and Red Bull Racing have announced a partnership in which Ford will become the engine supplier for the team starting in 2026.  This collaboration will mark Ford’s return to Formula One after 20 years and marks a major milestone for both companies.  Red Bull is coming off their first Constructors’ Championship in 10 years , and the addition of Ford’s expertise and technology is expected to enhance the team’s performance.  This partnership is a testament to the continuing evolution of Formula One in the American market.

Ford’s involvement in F1 stretches all the way back to the 1960s and the DFV (Double Four Valve) engine, built in partnership with British engineering firm Cosworth, which took 155 wins from 262 races between 1967 and 1985 (including several variant designs).

From their first title wins with Graham Hill and Lotus in 1968 to their most recent with Michael Schumacher and Benetton in 1994, Ford have played a part in 10 constructors’ championships and 13 drivers’ championships – making them the third most successful engine manufacturer in F1 history.
