Red Bull confirm 2007 engine plans

Red Bull have confirmed their engine strategy for the 2007 season. Red Bull racing will be powered by Renault units and the Scuderia Toro Rosso will be powered by Ferrari units.

Red Bull racing were already in the first of a two year deal with Ferrari however the Italians were reluctant to change the deal to supply the Toro Rosso team. The Ferrari team have now agreed to the change and Toro Rosso, who used Cosworth V10 engines last season, will now be powered by the Ferrari V8 engines for the next two seasons with an option to extend this by one further season.

Ferrari C.E.O. Jean Todt said “We are pleased to be embarking on a new long-term relationship with Scuderia Toro Rosso. It will allow us to strengthen our ties with the world of Italian motorsport and also to work a team run by Gerhard Berger, our former driver and friend of Ferrari”.
