Honda Aircraft just announced that it has delivered the HondaJet Elite to the Red Bull Formula 1 racing team, Scuderia AlphaTauri. With its aircraft acceptance, Italian Formula One team Scuderia AlphaTauri is now powered by Honda on the track and in the air. Red Bull recently began using the HondaJet Elite to transport their team during the Italian Grand Prix, which concluded with a stunning first place victory by AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly. The aircraft will be mainly operated in Europe and used for multiple purposes, including transporting drivers, other athletes and officers, and previewing racing circuits. The partnership between Honda and Red Bull in F1 racing dates back to 2018, when Honda began supplying power units to Red Bull’s Formula One team.
