Drive Wire: Red Bull Racing Wants Ferrari Engines


Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko says the team is planning to leave Formula One racing unless it can get competitive Ferrari engines. Current engines supplied by Renault have been a major disappointment in terms of performance and reliability. An engine supply deal with Mercedes fell through earlier this week, and Ferrari seems understandably reluctant to supply their engine to a competing team. But you may remember that Ferrari stole Red Bull’s most prominent piece of racing technology, German driver Sebastian Vettel, in 2014.
