Red Bull Racing have announced that their Innovation Partnership with Aston Martin is to continue in 2017.
The British sportscar manufacturer began the partnership in 2016 with the Aston Martin logo appearing on the nose of the Red Bull car.
Red Bull also took part in the design process of the AM-RB 001 hypercar.
Red Bull Racing Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey alongside Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichmann and Chief Special Operations Officer David King designed the hypercar.
‘Our relationship with Red Bull Racing has done for Aston Martin exactly what we expected it to do.
‘It is helping us to continue to build our brand across the globe. Partnerships like this are good for business both in terms of technical innovation and brand awareness, so we are pleased to continue into 2017.’ Aston Martin president and CEO Andrew Palmer said to motorsport.com.
Red Bull boss Christian Horner added: ‘The extraordinary success of the AM RB-001 is testament to the expert and collaborative spirit in which it was forged, and extending our relationship with Aston Martin through 2017 was a simple and pleasing decision.’
Aston Martin have announced that all 150 road going versions of their hypercar have sold out.

In fantasy F1 terms it would be lovely to see Aston Martin enter Formula One as a fully fledged manufacturer or engine supplier, but it seemingly will not be happening in the immediate future at least.
