Williams and Caterham could both be seeking new engine partners for 2014 if reports from the Monaco paddock are to be believed.

Would be strange to see Caterham have another engine given the current close ties with Renault which is not a "regie" any more by the way since it isn't state owned !

I guess many teams wished there were a cheap engine provider alternative like Cosworth today and wait a couple of seasons before having a deal with a manufacturer.

I would expect:
McLaren-Force India-Marussia to be with Honda
RBR-STR-Caterham to be with Renault
Ferrari-Sauber-Lotus to be with Ferrari
Mercedes-Williams to be with Mercedes

Just based loosely upon what I've read so far and what inter-team agreements are in place already...

@cknopp, erm...aren't Lotus cars built in the Renault Factory? Surely they're Renault through and through?

Marussia probably will go to Ferrari (hence the reason for hiring Bianchi). I do agree that Force India will likely end up with Honda though. With their somewhat of a partnership with McLaren I bet they reckon they're better off keeping the same engine supplier.
