Date published: May 29 2016

In the wake of a Spanish GP win and a Monaco pole position, Red Bull have announced the continuation of their partnership with engine supplier Renault.

The four-time World Champions made the announcement on Sunday morning, confirming that they will continue to run Renault power units rebadged as TAG Heuer for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Added to that, junior team Toro Rosso will also be supplied by Renault in 2017 and 2018, returning to the French manufacturer that powered them in 2014 and 2015.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership which has proved very successful over time. After the reconstruction that Renault has undertaken, clear progress has been made which has made it logical to continue with the TAG Heuer badged engine.”

The team revealed that over the period both Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso will receive the latest hybrid power unit, and have the opportunity to badge the power units as they wish.
