Andy Cowell announced in mid-2020 that he would be leaving Mercedes after sixteen years. Of those sixteen years he was the last seven years at the head of the motorcycle department of the world champions. What his future will bring is uncertain, but this may be the time for Red Bull to cast a fishing line.
Red Bull must then join the back of the row, because Ferrari would also have made several attempts to recruit Cowell. However, the Brit has invariably answered that with a ‘no’. The underlying considerations are unknown, so it is unclear whether an attempt by Red Bull to approach him would have any chance of success.
What is certain is that Honda will leave Formula 1 at the end of 2021 and will take a peloton of Japanese from the Red Bull pit box. Red Bull would like to keep the engines under a different name in order to assemble and maintain them themselves. And although it is hoped that an engine-freeze will not require further development of the engine, it is of course desirable to have some in-house knowledge of motor skills. That’s where Cowell can come into play.
Helmut Marko himself thinks it is a bit premature to talk about a possible role for Cowell now, but does not strongly deny that there would be any interest in him. To the question of Motorsport-Magazin whether he could be a suitable man to lead the ‘Honda’ project, he indicates that he does not know.
“No idea. First of all we need to know for sure what we are going to do. Then we will see who we want to put on that project. What we know for sure is that we want to shape the project within our own Red Bull facilities. Technology. “
What are the consequences of Albon’s drama for his Red Bull future? F1 journalist Ruud Dimmers, racing driver Tom Coronel and host Thomas van Groningen discuss this and more in RacingNews365’s new F1 podcast.
