Red Bull And Toro Rosso Won’t Be ‘Flintstoning It’ In 2016 – WTF1

Red Bull And Toro Rosso Won’t Be ‘Flintstoning It’ In 2016

In news that has dragged on for just as long as Renault buying Lotus, Red Bull have finally announced their engines for 2016, while Toro Rosso’s deal was confirmed just a few hours later.

At one point it seemed Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat might have to ‘Flinstone power’ their RB12 in 2016 but the team has recently announced their TAG – it’s not a Renault, honest – Heuer branded engines for next season.

The team will still be using Renault power units next year, but will run under the name Red Bull Racing-TAG Heuer. So presumably it’s a TAG engine when they win and a Renault engine when they get faced with some kind of outrageous grid-drop penalty again.

Meanwhile Toro Rosso have confirmed they will shift back to year-old Ferrari engines, which may not be a bad shout considering Ferrari’s much-improved 2015 power unit.
