RED Bull Racing will continue to be powered by Renault engines next season after announcing an extension of its engine contract with the French manufacturer. Red Bull and Renault first joined forces in 2007, with the team scoring 13 wins and 20 podium finishes in that time. A further two-year supply deal will see the current Constructor’s Championship-leading team powered by the Renault RS27 V8 engine until at least 2012, after which the engine regulations are tipped to be radically modified. As part of the deal, Renault logos will be more prominent on the Red Bull cars, with Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel’s helmet visors and the nose of each RB6 carrying the distinctive black and yellow emblem. “ We’re pleased to announce this extension,” said team boss Christian Horner. “ 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 13 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.” Two more years for Red Bull-Renault deal F1 NEWS >> Renaultconfirms1Malaysiadeal FernandesadamanthisteamwillbecalledLotus (whateverhappensbetweenGroupLotusandRenault) SENNA, the new movie documentary on the F1 legend’s life, is set for worldwide release next year after viewing figures in Japan surpassed early expectations. The movie premiered last month over the Japanese Grand Prix and has enjoyed a similarly strong response this weekend in Brazil. If current plans remain unchanged the film will premiere in tandem with the 2011 F1 calendar, so UK viewers can expect to see the film on the big screen in June. Senna producer James Gay-Rees said in Brazil: “ They (Universal Pictures) don’t release this sort of thing very often so if it does well in Japan and does well here [in Brazil] then hopefully all the other major territories, who are pretty pumped up about it, will be tracked with the grands prix because it seems to be working following that strategy. “ The good news is that it is doing very well in Japan, above and beyond Universal’s estimates, which is very heartening,” he added. McLaren boss Ron Dennis and Senna’s nephew Bruno were among those to praise the film. “Ayrton won all his world championships and almost all his grands prix for McLaren, so naturally McLaren occupies a very significant place in the Senna story,” said Dennis. “ The most important question is this: is the film a faithful and fitting tribute to the man? And in my opinion the answer is: yes, it is.” Bruno Senna, following in his uncle’s footsteps by contesting the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend, was equally pleased with the finished result: “It’s very special for me, I think for anyone who’s a racing driver it’s going to be quite special, whoever was a fan of Ayrton,” said the 27-year old Hispania driver. “It’s not a movie about racing itself but it’s a movie about the life of Ayrton, the implications of what he did in his life. It feels very special and definitely brought back many memories, good memories and some sad memories as well, of course.” Senna set for worldwide 2011 release 11
