Red Bull will continue to brand their Renault engines under the TAG Heuer name for the next two seasons, the team has confirmed.
The team has already extended its deal with Renault up to and including 2018. Following a win-less 2015, Red Bull has won two races with its TAG Heuer-branded Renault power units this season and will end the year second in the constructors’ championship.
“TAG Heuer and Red Bull Racing are two brands which both have a passion for racing and a drive to do things differently, and this forms the basis of our partnership,” said Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.
“The TAG Heuer motto of ‘Don’t Crack Under Pressure’ is something that we at Red Bull Racing live by day-to-day, so we look forward to helping TAG Heuer tell that story in the seasons ahead.”
Toro Rosso will also return to using Renault power next year, meaning both Red Bull-owned teams will again have the same engine supplier.
