Red Bull’s AlphaTauri F1 Team Races Off In New HondaJet Elite

Powering their Red Bull sponsored F1 team with engines and engineering from Honda, it was only natural for Scuderia AlphaTauri to insist on flying a HondaJet Elite.
That AlphaTauri dream was realized a few days ago when the team took possession of their brand new HondaJet Elite. After the very light jet’s arrival at RAS Headquarters at Mönchengladbach Airport in Germany, we provided the Red Bull crew with expert HondaJet pilot base training.

watching the Flying Bulls welcome their custom painted aircraft – another impressive jet joining the growing European fleet of new HondaJets. Their next destination was Red Bull’s famous Hangar-7 in Salzburg, Austria. As aviation enthusiasts well know, Hangar-7 is home to a prized collection of unique airplanes and helicopters – some of the greatest aircraft in aviation history. “We are pleased to be able to welcome a new member to the Flying Bulls fleet with the HondaJet HA-420 Elite,” stated Red Bull during the official handover at RAS Headquarters. “This marks another step in the great cooperation between Honda and Red Bull.” Jet turbine engineers from Honda Aircraft collaborated on turbocharger improvements in the latest Spec 3 engine upgrade to Red Bull’s F1 race car. Both the car and jet share other engineering similarities, such as advanced aerodynamics, carbon composite construction, and fuel efficiency.
