Alonso will feature with Aston Martin-Honda from 2026 – Inside Line F1 Podcast


Fernando Alonso will feature with Aston Martin-Honda from 2026, either as a driver or a team ambassador, we reckon.

Yes, Honda has publicly said that they don’t mind Alonso driving a race car powered by their engines, but would anyone come out publicly saying otherwise?

In fact, remember Alonso’s Indy 500 bid? He raced a Chevrolet-powered car. It was known, but not publicly declared, that Honda didn’t want him to race their engines. 

Mercedes had a similar stance till they relaxed it so that Alonso could race a Mercedes-powered Aston Martin this season.

2026 might seem far away, but Aston Martin will already planning their driver line-up – what’s next after Alonso? They will need an A-lister…and Lance Stroll isn’t one.

Could this partnership interest Charles Leclerc or Lando Norris? Honda has declared that they would like to a Japanese driver at Aston Martin – could it be Yuki Tsunoda or Ayumu Iwasa? Interesting times ahead.

Here’s an upload of a Twitter Spaces conversation between Soumil Arora and Kunal Shah for our avid podcast audience.
