This year, after a very last minute change of plan towards the end of 2015, we reverted to being powered by our good friends from Ferrari, running their 2015 specification hybrid Power Unit. And our focus for the rest of this year is very much on making the most of our partnership, which has seen the team run competitively in the opening part of the season.

Franz Tost commented: “The move back to Renault, whom we worked with in 2014 and 2015 is a logical one, to use more synergies with Red Bull Technology. To make the most of this, both teams need to run the same Power Unit. Only this will give us the opportunity to work and cooperate even more efficiently within the Group. We also want to thank Ferrari for the very good relationship, and for the excellent service”.
