Red Bull Racing set to move to Ferrari engine for 2016


Four-time world champions, Red Bull F1 team could race with Ferrari engines to assist stimulate their power from 2016 Formula 1 season.

Red Bull emerge likely to end their relationship with Renault following an upsetting couple of years – and Ferrari are the only clear-headed alternative following Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said that to power Red Bull would not be in his own team’s interests.

Renault confirmed to media on Sunday in Monza that the company will now either complete the purchase of Lotus or exit F1. There is no third option of continuing to supply engines alone.

“Red Bull have big names, with Adrian Newey as chief designer, and it is easy to think if you give them the engine they will build a scary chassis, which means they will be really competitive, my engineers and aerodynamicists know their own jobs. Ferrari F1 team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene told The Guardian.

‘For that reason I don’t have a problem supplying another team, and it is nice when you have a stronger competitor.

‘This doesn’t mean tomorrow morning we will give our engines to Red Bull or Toro Rosso. But being scared of the competition before they start is not what Ferrari represents. We fight with everybody.’ The Italian team boss added.

Early in the weekend Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner told jamesallenonf1.com – “Sitting here today we still have a contract with Renault. To my knowledge I’ve not had any discussion with Ferrari – unless Maurizio can tell me differently.

“But we’ve got an agreement with Renault as I say, we’ve got conditions within that agreement that aren’t privy to this group here and time will tell in terms of what their future holds for them. So hopefully something will be forthcoming in the near future.”
