Why change a winning formula? Red Bull will continue to run on Renault engines until the end of 2016 it has been announced.

The news means that in 2014 the leading constructor in F1 will transfer to Renault's new V6 turbo engine in 2014.

In a statement delivered on Friday in Monza it was confirmed that a new deal between the firms will seek 'to develop innovative technical solutions for the V6-based power unit.'

'Red Bull Racing and Renault share the views that stability is a fundamental condition to perform at the top levels of competition,' said Renault Sport's Bernard Rey.

'We're obviously thrilled to announce this significantly enhanced agreement with the Renault-Nissan alliance,' said the Red Bull boss Christian Horner. Renault MD Jean-Francois Caubet added that the deal,l to use Red Bull's 'input, resources and vast in-house F1 car expertise', will be beneficial to Renault's other partners, such as Lotus-Renault and Team Lotus.
