F1 >>> nEWs Red Bull Racing will continue its relationship with both Adrian Newey and Renault, in spite of the difficulty that the teams using the French power units have had this season. Team principal Christian Horner (above) said in Montreal that there was no intention of looking for an alternative power unit, in spite of the fact that the four- time World champion team is yet towinaraceortotakeapole position this season. “They know the situation,” Horner told Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport. “[Renault president] Carlos Ghosn reassured us on his visit to Monte Carlo. “We must not forget that we have also had a lot of success with Renault, and we trust them to solve their problems.” There were suggestions that the form of the Mercedes- Benz powered teams were serving to encourage RBR to look at switching units, and even rumours that concerns that Honda may be having about the form of McLaren – with which it will partner in its F1 return next season – may prompt the Japanese maker to look for a second team for next year. But both suggestions appear to founder on this quote from Horner; “We will have Renault engines in our cars next year, 100 per cent.” While Newey recently publically committed to the team, RBR has confirmed only that he would work on “new Red Bull Technology projects” , aswellas “advising and mentoring” the F1 team “as it develops its formula one cars over the next few seasons” . “The details of the new projects will be announced in due course,” a media statement added. It is thought that Newey will diversify into areas like developing road cars and aircraft but “with the secret hope that someday he will miss competition and crawl back to F1” , according to correspondent Michael Schmidt.
