Red Bull and Renault Set to Split After 2018: Reports

F1 Mc Laren And Honda Split To Be Announced At The Singapore GP

Prior to this, the Toro Rosso team is said to have already made the switch to Honda power units, signing on a three year deal with the Japanese automaker.

Red Bull and Renault are said to split as well after the end of the 2019 Formula 1 season.

Given that Ferrari and Mercedes have previously rejected Red Bull's requests for engines, Honda appear the likeliest of F1's four current makers to be the team's power providers in the season after next.

Red Bull has been linked to Volkswagen-owned brands Audi and Porsche in the past, with the latter acknowledging this month that it was considering a return to Grand Prix racing. There will be further developments with that but that doesn't relate to the engine.

This follows the launch of Red Bull's recent Singlish challenge video, where the duo attempted to guess phrases such as "catch no ball", "kan cheong spider" and "fly aeroplane".

Talk of Dietrich Mateschitz, the team's current owner, walking away from F1 is nothing new however, and the next test of the Austrian's magnate commitment is likely to come when the first draft of the sport's anticipated overhaul is presented.

"We just want to be in a competitive position so I think these hybrid regulations have been quite frustrating in many, many respects", Horner said.

"I'm very glad that all the parties concerned have been able to agree on commercial terms for an extension as Formula One and, I believe, Singapore have been good for each other", Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran told reporters at the Marina Bay street circuit.

Australia's Daniel Ricciardo is bringing back his world-famous 'shoey', and he could even be sipping out of it as soon as Sunday if claims victory at the Singapore Grand Prix.

"He's going to have a child". "Here, what I've seen today, Red Bull is outstanding, in the long runs they are one second quicker so they are really doing an incredible performance at the moment".

Having said on Friday he wanted a "dominant" weekend, Ricciardo said he was left "accepting a little bit of defeat" after ending up on the second row behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen.

Force India decided to implement team orders after the race, with chief operating officer Otmar Szafnauer saying "if they can't sort themselves out then we'll have to do it for them".
