Renault terminates Red Bull engine supply after 2018 — Formula One

Vettel is a four-time winner at the Singapore night race, which started in 2008 and will now run until at least 2021 after organisers announced a four-year contract extension.

Both are race winners and likely to be of interest to Ferrari and Mercedes. "Everybody is waiting to see what the regulations are for 2021 onwards".

"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.

It casts doubt on the future direction of Red Bull's two star drivers, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen.

Likewise, Mercedes' dominant car over the last three years set the stage for the sport's fiercest rivalry - between their two drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

The Austrian team and French engine-maker won four drivers' and constructors' world titles from 2010 to 2013, but they have since fallen behind Mercedes and Ferrari in the pecking order.

Renault's contract with Red Bull ends after 2018, and as that relationship has been nowhere near harmonious with numerous complaints about reliability from Red Bull, they've opted not to extend it. To wit: this is the engine supplier Red Bull tried to abandon once before, only to rebrand the Renault units as "Tag Heuers" when no other F1 engine supplier would work with them.

"I think anything after '18 at the moment is purely speculation", the Red Bull team principal told the BBC ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix.

"He's going to have a child". There will be further developments with that but that doesn't relate to the engine.

"We fortunately cleared the air then and there". I don't know if he wants to die or something.

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) attempted to ban the use of team orders in 2002, but the sport's governing body retracted the ban in 2011 as teams were continuing to find ways around the rule.

"Verstappen publicly apologised to Ricciardo after knocking him out of the race with a poor passing move, with the Aussie later branding his teammate a 'f--ing sore loser".

"If you work together the team can become stronger and grow".

McLaren will be powered next year by Renault, which simultaneously said it was leaving Toro Rosso - who will now be driving Honda engines. Everyone manages it differently.
