In regards to Renault and Red Bull, they started working together in 2007, just after Renault won their second straight championship. They seemed to function well with the same equipment, even when Red Bull were beating them in 2009, 2010 and 2011. I’m sure they and McLaren will have the same deal, since a Renault powered car winning is better than no Renault winning. Plus McLaren are more civil than Red Bull.
U get what u pay. Mclaren will pay full package and they are obligated to give it to them, like Mclaren provides equal steering wheels and sensors to teams if im correct. The same lubricant provider is a good thing as well in this case.
Somewhat Renault has struck a homerun with getting Mclaren onboard, since they will have some insight of the Honda engine, about things that work and things that dont work, maybe they can make solutions of japanese problems and use them for their advantage. On the other hand, STR could be sent as an information gatherer for them completely unrelated to Mclaren.
