Renault needs to decrease F1 engine supply



Current top F1 engine supplier Renault plays down the talk that it could supply engines to half the grid. Following they confirm that need to reduce the number of customer.

Renault has been linked with Formula 1 as both constructors and engine suppliers for various periods since 1977. Currently they are providing engines to Red Bull, Lotus, Williams and Caterham. Even as Toro Rosso planning switch to Renault engines for 2014.

“Definitely not six,” engine chief Jean-Michel Jalinier said, when asked by Autosport about how many outfits Renault would be supplying in the future.

“Five might be an option but really a maximum because we want to deliver a good service. To me, five should be really a max and, if we go back from four to three, I will be happy.

“We were very comfortable with three [teams] in terms of assistance and doing our job properly.”

Renault is developing a new 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged engine in line with the new regulations for 2014, and has planned to test it throughout 2012. Red Bull currently has a deal to use the engines until 2016.
