Red Bull extends Renault engine deal to 2012
Red Bull Racing have today announced it has agreed a two-year extension to its current partnership with French engine manufacturer Renault. The team will therefore race the Renaults until the end of 2012 after teaming up with the French squad for the past 4 years as well.
In recognition of the renewed partnership, Red Bull Racing will feature greater Renault visibility starting from this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix. The Renault logo will appear on the noses of both RB6s and its name will be on the visors of both Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s race helmets.
Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing Team Principal:
"We’re pleased to announce this extension. We have always enjoyed a very straightforward relationship with Renault and they have supported us extremely fairly during the past four seasons, contributing to our thirteen grand prix victories so far. The relationship continues to evolve and we look forward to working with them during our 2011 Formula One World Championship campaign."
