Engines - to have or to have not

Engine machinations
October 9, 2015 by Joe Saward
The Formula 1 world becomes ever more bizarre. It seems that Red Bull Racing is going to have to go (on bended knee) to Renault in order to have engines in 2016. The Milton Keynes team terminated its 2016 Renault contract in July, convinced that finding another engine would not be that hard. Since then the team has been told to “bog off” by Mercedes (at Spa) and more recently by Ferrari. Neither manufacturer wants to deal with the team, which has a reputation for criticising its partners. With Honda having made it clear that there are no engines available for Red Bull, the only choice for the team is to go back to Renault. Fortunately, Renault might be willing to accept the situation because it has been negotiating a nine-year deal with the Formula One group and if Bernie Ecclestone “asks” to Renault to help out Red Bull, it would be wise for Renault to agree. This may not be the long-term solution for Red Bull Racing, but beggars cannot be choosers and right now there are no other options. In the longer term, there may be solutions involving other manufacturers (particularly if Red Bull is willing to pay to help development). We will have to see what develops…
