Red Bull Racing has signed a two-year contract extension with current power unit supplier Renault which will continue to be badged as Tag Heuer.

After spending the 2016 season using Ferrari power units, sister team Toro Rosso will also revert to Renault, with whom they were previously partners in the 2014/15 seasons. Both teams will receive the latest power unit over the two years and will also have the freedom to badge the power unit under a sponsor of their choice.

“We are delighted to extend our partnership which has proved very successful over time,” Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner said.

“After the reconstruction that Renault has undertaken, clear progress has been made which has made it logical to continue with the TAG Heuer badged engine.”

Red Bull Racing and Renault first teamed up in 2007 after the Milton Keynes outfit spent their first two seasons with Ferrari and Cosworth respectively.

The successful partnership has won four Constructors’ and Drivers’ championships with a total of 51 wins.
