Honda's engines were built in Sakura with additional work being done at Milton Keynes.

Red Bull Powertrains is based in Milton Keynes.

Honda certainly did better in recent seasons than when they initially came back to F1 with McLaren in the mid 10s. I did wonder if they were cut out to be in F1 in this day and age. And it's not really a surprise they are now leaving again, even if they have finally managed to find success. They never seemed to fit in

When Yusuke Hasegawa left as head of Honda F1 at the end of 2017, he said Honda had very high expectations and that was their big mistake. They were too ambitious and were simply not ready for a return to F1 having been away for seven years.

Despite the initial move to STR and then to RB, I think Honda were constantly trying to play catch up. 7 years is a long time to be out of something like F1.

Are you sure?
IIRC Mugen had already a factory in UK before Honda's McLaren involvement in 2015.

Was the MK operation set up for both “Honda” and “Mugen”? I think it was that rather than take over a Mugen facility, although they were close by anyway

I think that's the old factory, the new factory is across the road: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.02...7i13312!8i6656

Gosh, Milton Keynes sure is glamorous!

That's why I said "just about here" as there's a facility with Honda signage on both sides of the road.

I don't think RBR can move the engine stuff to where they are, unless they pay surrounding businesses to move off the estate they're in. I had a chance to visit a few years back and compared to (say) Williams or Mercedes with their tidy enclosed sites, RBR felt like a bit of a hodge podge of industrial units with a public road through the middle.

Don't get me wrong, inside it was spectacular like the others, but totally different outside.

Just remembered some staff looking at my car funny when I arrived... Turned out my front offside caliper was binding and they could see the smoke when I parked up

Interesting to see that Volkswagen are considering spinning Porsche out of VAG via a possible flotation to raise funds for continued electricfication of the VAG models.

Perhaps Red Bull might buy a stake in Porsche and then bring them into F1 as either engine brand or do a 'Stroll' and have Porsche F1 Racing?
