Renault is ready to supply its power plants to Red Bull Racing, if the team makes a request. This was announced on Friday by the managing director of Renault Sport Racing Cyril Abiteboul.
The regulations say that “every powertrain manufacturer must supply engines to at least three teams at the request of the FIA.” Next season, the power plants of Mercedes will be on the cars of four teams, Ferrari – on three, Honda – on two, and Renault engines will remain only on its factory team.
Cyril Abiteboul added that despite the scandalous separation from Red Bull Racing a few years ago, Renault is ready to cooperate with the team again: “We know the regulations and will comply with them. I think the issue will be on the agenda only if Red Bull does not find a way out of the situation. I hope it doesn’t come to that.
When a company is involved in sports, it takes on certain responsibilities. As for us, we will comply with the obligations assumed under the regulations. “
