SCUDERIA TORO ROSSO TO USE RENAULT POWER UNIT FROM 2014
 
  • Chairman and CEO of Renault Carlos Ghosn confirms in Monaco that Renault will supply V6 turbo engines and energy recovery systems to Scuderia Toro Rosso for use in the FIA Formula One World Championship from 2014 onwards
  • New relationship builds on the existing partnership between Renault and Infiniti Red Bull Racing, sister team to Scuderia Toro Rosso
  • Renault and Infiniti Red Bull Racing finalise terms for long term premium partnership
  • Renault has supplied its RS27 V8 engine to Infiniti Red Bull Racing since 2007, winning three consecutive constructors' and drivers' titles together
    Renault and Scuderia Toro Rosso today announced a long-term partnership that will see Renault Sport F1 supply Scuderia Toro Rosso with its power unit (turbocharged V6 engine and energy recovery systems) from 2014 onwards.
    The partnership builds on the existing relationship between Renault and Toro Rosso's sister team Infiniti Red Bull Racing, which has yielded three constructors' and drivers' titles in its six year history. Terms have also been agreed to continue this association into 2014 and beyond, with Infiniti Red Bull Racing remaining the development partner for the new V6 turbo power unit.
     
    Jean-Michel Jalinier, Renault Sport F1 President

While it is logical we would discuss supplying Toro Rosso based on our partnership with Infiniti Red Bull Racing, it was not a foregone conclusion. We carefully considered what is best for all parties before concluding the agreement. Toro Rosso is a well-run, established team, with strong personnel and facilities giving the team the potential to be a regular points contender.

Renault remains involved in F1 to win and demonstrate the excellence of its products. To achieve our aims we need to have teams functioning at the highest level, which is why we are delighted to sign with Toro Rosso.
Off track it will also enable us to further promote the association with the Red Bull brand to our customers worldwide. We look forward to creating a long and multi-level relationship with Toro Rosso, just as we have with Infiniti Red Bull Racing.
 
Franz Tost, Scuderia Toro Rosso Team Principal

We are very pleased to have reached an agreement to use Renault power units from the 2014 season onwards, when the new regulations will present interesting challenges. It is particularly important that we have managed to finalise our plans early, so that we can be as well prepared as possible for next year.  While looking forward to working with Renault, I would also like to thank Ferrari, our engine supplier since 2007. They have provided us with an extremely effective and reliable engine and an excellent service.

Christian Horner, Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team Principal

Strategically for Red Bull and Renault, it makes perfect sense for Scuderia Toro Rosso to use the same power unit as Infiniti Red Bull Racing from the 2014 season, which enables synergies between Red Bull and Renault to continue to grow.
Bernie Ecclestone

I'm pleased to see this deal come together. Renault's contribution to the sport and continued support of multiple teams is important to keep the diversity of the field in the coming years.
