In a press release, the Japanese car manufacturer, announcing its retirement from the World Championship, named the reason for this decision. The company noted that now the automotive industry has entered a period that is very important for the entire industry. This happens every 50 years. Manufacturing technologies are changing a lot and in the future there will be special demands on machines. We're talking about the powertrain and the emissions they produce. Honda wants to create engines with no environmental impact by 2050. To achieve this goal, the manufacturer will need all available resources, which is why the sports department is closing. After 2021, its employees will begin to develop advanced solutions in the field of motor engineering.
The company's clients have already expressed their opinion on this matter. Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri understand the desire of the minder to leave Formula 1 and take on a new challenge. They are grateful to their partner for their joint work and hope that next season will allow them to achieve maximum results.
