Red Bull seals 2016 engine deal

RED Bull’s continued participation in Formula One is secure for the short term, with team principal Christian Horner confirming yesterday that a new engine supply deal is in place for next season.

“We have an agreement with an engine for next year which hopefully will be confirmed in the coming days,” Horner said. “We’ve entered the (2016) world championship, we’ve signed a contract for an engine, but I can’t tell you what it’ll be or called at the moment.”

Ferrari and Mercedes rejected Red Bull’s approaches to take over as a supplier, so it appears Red Bull has had to return to Renault, just weeks after they appeared to have ended their ties.

Red Bull and Renault had a highly successful partnership when Sebastian Vettel won four consecutive titles from 2010-13, but since the introduction of the complex V6 hybrid-power engines last year, the team has slumped.
