F1 » Red Bull Racing extends engine deal with Renault


Christian Horner: We're obviously thrilled to announce this significantly enhanced agreement with the Renault-Nissan Alliance, who we have enjoyed a close working relationship with since 2007.

with Willams joining the parade next year, I guess Red Bull will try Toro Rosso to get Renault engines too, so they can utilize the investment better.
I hope VW becomes engine supplier by 2014 if not a team. Some added variety will be nice since there is none in tyres anymore

I think red Bull are trying to offload Torro Rosso so I'm not so sure about that.

Can an engine supplier still only supply 4 teams ?

Genni Captial F1
Red Bull Racing
Lotus F1
Williams

I don't think they can supply another team.

I would have been much more exited if it was Ferarri or a Merc engines as the Renault has not had the same power for the last few consecutive years. But the proof is in the pudding they say and Red Bull has been using the Renault engine winning championships so I can appreciate the value of a long term relationship.

Ferrari and Merc are not going to allow Red Bull to beat them with their own engine. It's bad enough that they are spanking them with a Renault. Which by the way has the same HP as the rest.

The Renault might be slightly down on HP but its other qualities make up for that, especially given the fact that their philosophy is quite compatible with Newey's views.
