F1 news: Red Bull encouraged by Honda for 2019 season

Sky Sports | Updated: 2018-12-11 02:00:38

Red Bull have been "really encouraged" by the recent progress of their 2019 engine partners Honda.

The team will adopt a different approach to their relationship with Honda compared to the style of McLaren.

Honda supplied McLaren for three years between 2014 and 2016 before becoming Toro Rosso's exclusive power providers last season. In 2019, they will return to the sharp end of the grid with Red Bull, who are determined not to follow McLaren's perceived manner of micromanaging Honda.

"We have done the diverse opposite to McLaren," Red Bull boss Christian Horner told Sky F1. "We've said 'go and build the best engine you can, and then tell us what size radiators you want and we will make it fit'.

"We want Honda to go for power over packaging."
