This is F1Minute - Red Bull confirm five year engine deal with Renault.
Red Bull Racing have confirmed an extension to their engine partnership with Renault Sport - adding another five years onto their deal. Running until 2016, the deal will include the introduction of new designs in 2014, when the 1.6 litre V6-turbo engines come into effect.
The new agreement also includes provision for a collaboration between the two, with a joint technical venture to share knowledge and innovate further.
Team principal at Red Bull, Christian Horner, spoke of the deal, saying: “Renault Sport F1 has always been very straight-forward to work with, which has been a contributing factor to the on-going success of the Red Bull Racing-Renault partnership. Together we have so far achieved 22 wins, 32 pole positions, 1130.5 World Championship points and two World Championships.”
It’s not all about Red Bull though, as Jean-Francois Caubet, Managing Director at Renault Sport added: “Having this particular support will of course be to the advantage of our other team partners, who will indirectly benefit from the joint expertise of Red Bull and Renault Sport.”
