The news means Aston Martin will no longer be involved with Red Bull Racing following the conclusion of the 2020 season. The British manufacturer teamed up with the Milton Keynes-based squad in 2016 to create a next-generation hypercar; the team confirmed today that ''Red Bull Advanced Technologies will continue to work with Aston Martin on its innovation partnership in order to deliver the Valkyrie hypercar''. They became Red Bull’s title sponsors in 2018.
