LONDON (Reuters) – British luxury sportscar maker Aston Martin is looking to get more engaged in Formula One, chief executive Andy Palmer said on Sunday amid speculation of a title partnership with Red Bull and future engine involvement.
“We want to be more involved in the sport,” Palmer told Britain’s Channel 4 television while attending the Singapore Grand Prix.

“We’re currently studying the 2021 engine. If we get a reasonable regulation that brings down the cost of the engine, Aston would like to be involved in the engine,” added the Briton.
“And then of course we’d like to be involved a little more next season and then join the dots. But it really depends on what happens with the engine regs.”
Bull - Aston - Martin - Relationship - Team
Red Bull and Aston Martin have an existing relationship, with the team’s race cars carrying branding for the marque since last year.
Top designer Adrian Newey, whose Renault-powered Red Bull race cars won four successive drivers’ and constructors’ titles between 2010-13, has worked with Aston Martin on the AM-RB 001 Valkyrie ‘hypercar’.
