Red Bull and sister group Toro Rosso could be controlled by Ferrari from 2016, as indicated by a report in the German press. While a change to Ferrari would be surprising, Red Bull has really been powered by Maranello-constructed motors some time recently, in 2006.
Red Bull has persevered through an exceptionally baffling 2015 season in which they have gathered only 54 points from seven races. Toward the end of a year ago, Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel moved to Ferrari, however he said that he had a good past relationship with Red Bull team.
As per German publication Sport Bild, a conceivable answer for the Milton Keynes-based group’s battles is a connection up with Ferrari in 2016, despite the fact that their arrangement with Renault goes through next season. In its most recent release, Sport Bild claims that Ferrari is to be sure eager to encourage Red Bull and Toro Rosso’s arrival to Italian power for 2016.
On the other hand, an aggressive motor will take a swing at an expense for Red Bull. As per the reports, Ferrari are interested in uniting with Red Bull, yet the Bulls would have distinct “B” group status and would have a detail of motor 20-30 torque behind that of the works Ferrari group.
While this situation would not be ideal, Red Bull advisor Dr Helmut Marko believes that it’s a better one to where they currently stand.
“Even a B version of the Ferrari would be better than the A version of the Renault,” Marko told Sports Bild.
“Red Bull wants the confidence we have the capacity to catch up, and on our side we need the certainty we can catch up,” Abiteboul told Autosport.
“We also need to have confidence in the value of the sport and in the value of this partnership. This is something that is built over time. There is no rush.”
He added: “I know this is the type of organisation that starts drawing early. I would imagine at some point later in 2015 they will want to know what is going on in 2017.”
