Red Bull, Renault to split after 2018 F1 season


17 September, 2017

Sky Sports understands Renault have served notice on Red Bull that they will cease to supply the former world champions after the end of next season. Finally, after hearing all the problems and complaints by Horner and the Red Bull Racing team altogether, Renault decided to make the first move and not renew the contract past the end of next season. However, although not confirmed yet, speculation suggests Renault could pull the plug next year - two years ahead of schedule. Anything beyond that is open. Red Bull themselves wanted to find another engine supplier, but could come to terms with any other company.

Red Bull's sister team, Toro Rosso, will end the Renault deal at the end of this season and take McLaren's Honda engine supply. "It's important that we keep that for tomorrow but I have faith that we can perform on this level all weekend". "It's always good to have options".

But Horner ruled out either joining before 2021.

"There's been talk about a German manufacturer [Porsche] coming in - that's not going to happen", he said.

"We were obviously close with the field today and we have still got some improvements to make with the vehicle", said Hamilton.

"When I'm that far behind and we don't have the quickest vehicle on all circuits right now, you really need them to crash and blow engines for at least half of those races, and then I need to be winning basically".

Either way, I'm all for seeing Aston Martin try their hand at building an F1 engine-so long as they don't suck. "Everybody is waiting to see what the regulations are for 2021 onwards".

"I think Seb turned it on in qualifying but I'm looking forward to tomorrow".

"I love competition, it is my dream job, but I kind of don't just want to be here to be here".

Vettel is a four-time victor at the Singapore night race, which started in 2008 and will now run until at least 2021 after organisers announced a four-year contract extension.
