“High-level sources” close to respected media outfit Autosport have confirmed that Red Bull Racing will partner with Honda for the 2019 season and say there are “suggestions” of an announcement before the French Grand Prix this weekend.
Red Bull have been forced to decide whether they stick with current power unit supplier Renault for 2019 or switch to Honda, who currently power Red Bull’s sister team, Toro Rosso.
Autosport claims that the decision was made and communicated to Honda and Renault on Monday the 18th of June.
Red Bull had earlier said they’d announce their choice at the Austrian Grand Prix, a week after this weekend’s race in France.
Neither Red Bull or Honda would comment to Autosport about the claims.
