Renault boss urges Red Bull to think hard

Red Bull F1 team hints at Honda engine deal for 2019

Talks have already begun with Honda to evaluate a potential switch to the Japanese manufacturer, which supplies Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso has made solid progress with its engine since previous year.

Red Bull has grown impatient with Renault in recent seasons as the manufacturer has lagged behind Mercedes and Ferrari in terms of performance and reliability, reducing its chances of winning titles.

Red Bull must decide between sticking with Renault, the manufacturer that powered them to four championships between 2010 and 2013 but with whom they fell out afterwards, and Honda who are now partners of Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso. "I don't see why they are going to further delay the decision", Abiteboul added.

During free practice one, which Max Verstappen topped for Red Bull, Horner spoke from the pit wall saying that a final decision was not too far away.

"It is very different and I appreciate that".

"Their vehicle is clearly a great auto, maybe the greatest out there, they have the chance to be world champion again within the next two years [if they stay with Renault]", he added. I can not say [the same] for Honda.

"With what they have now, what is coming in the pipeline, and their auto which is clearly a great vehicle, maybe the greatest out there, they have the chance to be world champion again within the next two years". "They wanted an offer, we've made an offer, that offer has to be accepted in the next few days". "Maybe it is my emotional side". I have been working 12 years of pulling my hairs with Christian and Helmut, and I don't want to lose any of that.

"In the construction of the Renault team, I think it is still interesting to get their [Red Bull's] benchmarking capacity".

"I have a date, they know the day, but we are not talking about Austria. They have showed that a Renault engine can win races in straight conditions, so that is a good sign of what we are doing, where we are progressing and where we need to progress". The decision and possibly the announcement could be made when the sport heads to the Red Bull Ring for the Austrian Grand Prix. "We will have facts which we are waiting for, and we want to be prepared to make the right decision".

"We want the best engine that gives us the most competitive chances going forward. Obviously, Renault and Honda have brought upgrades here, so we're in the crux of decision-making between now and just after the French Grand Prix".
