Aston Martin could partner with mythological competition and engineering organisation Cosworth to co-develop an engine for Formula 1.
Company CEO Andy Palmer has already uttered his seductiveness in producing a powertrain for Red Bull Racing (pictured below), of that Aston Martin is pretension sponsor, and now Cosworth powertrains trainer Bruce Wood has suggested his vigilant on removing involved.
“We’ve finished a lot of work with Aston for many years, we’re operative really closely with Red Bull and a group for a Valkyrie [hypercar], so there’s a certain proof to it,” Wood told Autosport. “They [Aston Martin] also don’t aspire to conceptualizing it all themselves, so there’s a healthy fit there and positively that’s where some of those discussions are happening.”

The new rules, that are approaching to see extreme changes to a hybrid powertrains in a bid to revoke growth costs, are due to be suggested in a second half of this year.
