Head of Renault Sport’s Cyril Abitbul gave to understand that by the end of may the company would like to hear from Red Bull Racing’s answer to the question on further cooperation.
In the upcoming season, the Austrian team intends to monitor closely the progress of the Honda mechanics, which now runs the Toro Rosso. If a power plant from Japan will be competitive and reliable, it is not excluded that already in 2019 the Honda engine will stand on the machines of both teams Red Bull. But quietly and without haste to make a decision, it seems, will not work.
“We are not going to wait forever for their solution, – quotes Abimbola BBC F1. – I know that is referring to Horner when he says that they have options. He has every right to do. But I, like him, read contracts and know our obligations. By a certain date, Red Bull Racing needs to decide what he wants.
The deadline spelled out in the rules. I believe that by the end of may you should see some clarity as to who will supply engines next year. So we will wait for an answer this time.”
