Aston Martin Team Principal Mike Krack has issued an update on the partnership between Honda ahead of their partnership in 2026.
New technical regulations will be introduced in just over two years' time, which will see a revamp to both the chassis and Power Unit side of the car.
Honda has opted to re-enter Formula 1 as an engine supplier and will join forces with Aston Martin.
The Silverstone-based squad enjoyed a strong campaign this year as it scored eight podiums en route to claiming fifth in the Constructors' Championship.
It also moved into a new factory as it upgraded its facilities, with team owner Lawrence Stroll continuing to invest in the squad.
Having raced under various guises during its history such as Force India and Racing Point, it has competed with Mercedes engines since the 2009 season.
However, that will change in 2026 with Honda currently scheduled to solely supply Aston Martin with Power Unit.

With the announcement of the tie-up coming back in May, Krack outlined what has occurred behind the scenes since then.
“The first step that had to be done was to set up some working groups for the different areas to define responsibilities, the usual stuff that you do when you have a technical partnership,” Krack told media including RacingNews365.
“We are already one step further that than that, the working groups are working together.
“[We're looking at] different areas, exploring exchanging experiences and doing simulation work together.
“And then [we're] also updating each other: what is happening on the PU regulation side?
“What is happening on the chassis regulation side? Is there something that we need to drive in common?
“So, all these kind of stuff is going on at the moment.”
