Red Bull and Renault have denied reports that the reigning Formula 1 World Champions could split, amid a problem packed start to the 2014 season.
Together, after Sebastian Vettel won the last nine grands prix of 2013, Red Bull and Renault are now embroiled in a technical crisis after the new V6 ‘Power Unit’ struggled just to run in the rear of Adrian Newey’s RB10.
The dasastrous testing sessions at Jerez triggered reports that Red Bull is on the lookout for a new engine supplier.
Reports have emerged that Cosworth, without a customer for the 2014 season, has completed its turbo V6 engine prototype – a design that will not be raced this year.
The wilder reports claim that Red Bull could take over the project and run its own engines for 2015.
