Red Bull confirmed on Tuesday that Renault will supply engines to Red Bull Racing next year, while sister team Toro Rosso will be powered by Ferrari. The move signals the end of Red Bull Racing’s two-year agreement with Ferrari - a season early.

Toro Rosso, who this year used rev-limited V10 units from Cosworth, will instead be supplied by the Italian squad.

“We are pleased to be embarking on a new long-term relationship with Toro Rosso,” explained Ferrari CEO, Jean Todt. “It will allow us to strengthen our ties with the world of Italian motor sport and also to work with a team run by Gerhard Berger, our former driver and friend of Ferrari.”

Spyker MF1 will also be powered by Ferrari next season.
