The Honda logo will always be visible on a small scale on the Red Bull driver’s suit and cars. A spokesperson for Red Bull declined to comment when asked by this website.
Acura is the luxury automotive division of Honda in the United States, which was founded 35 years ago. This is not the first time that this name has appeared in Formula 1.
