Lovelorn Red Bull posts ‘lonely car’ ad

Red Bull seeks a 'non-smoking partner that likes weekends away' in humorous 'lonely hearts' ad.
Red Bull showed it still has a 'GSOH' over its current engine situation after parodying itself with a 'lonely hearts' ad towards potential suppliers.

With power unit options dwindling for 2016 with only three rounds of this season remaining, Red Bull Racing took to Twitter to post an advert seeking a 'non-smoking partner' for its 'lonely RB12'.




Despite the humours take on its situation, Red Bull seems no closer to sourcing the engine deal it is seeking. Initially hoping to land a Mercedes deal, the German manufacturer turned it down for fear of assisting a rival before Ferrari did the same over Red Bull's demands for a current specification power unit.

As it stands, Ferrari could still supply a 2015 specification engine and Honda has also been mentioned, though McLaren is understood to be blocking that deal. It could also retain Renault engines, though Christian Horner has flatly ruled this out.

Funny, as a divorce is still not announced yet. I don't mind to be a marriage counceler. (With proven track-record!) I only take 5 % of the probable damages in case of patching up things in between 2 parties have and a no cure no pay policy, so what's the risk? And "never"say "never" before te actual divorce has been pronounced!

Pau1inel: Tick tock. Didn't Red Bull give themselves until the end of October to seal a deal or quit? 14 hours to go (GMT)...........
I reckon RBR have been expecting October to be extended by several days and will publicly criticise the calendar for not supplying them with the extra days they need.
