Red Bull prepping for Aston Martin F1 announcement?

Report Red Bull Renault to split after 2018 F1 season image

The Honda has been the slowest and least reliable of Formula One's four current engines, but Red Bull might have to use it in 2019, given the lack of any other option at present.

The news has not been made public yet, but can be revealed here ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix weekend. While that stoked fears that Red Bull might be saddled with Honda as their only engine option, Red Bull hinted to Sky Sports that they have "existing relationship" with a motor manufacturer who can hook them up in Renault's place for 2019 that sounds a lot like Aston Martin. "Anything after that is at this point in time just paddock rumour".

The reports come as McLaren is expected to part ways with engine-maker Honda and go with Renault instead. Specifically, he says it's not Honda, who will now supply Red Bull's junior squad Toro Rosso next year, and not Porsche, as has also been rumored to be interested in F1 but more in the long run.

Fernando Alonso is expected to stay at McLaren if they ditch Honda, while Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen may want out of Red Bull if the Japanese engine-maker comes on board.

The largest number live in Asia (520 million), followed by Africa (243 million), and Latin America and the Caribbean (42 million). The agencies called for new ways of working to achieve the goal of ending hunger and malnutrition by 2030.

Prior to the switch to the current engine regulations in 2014, Red Bull and Renault were a very competitive duo.

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. "I want to focus on the beginning of 2018 and see how competitive we are".

Red Bull is the only team other than Mercedes and Ferrari to have won a race this season. Finally, after hearing all the problems and complaints by Horner and the Red Bull Racing team altogether, Renault decided to make the first move and not renew the contract past the end of next season.
