Mercedes will not supply F1 engines to Red Bull or AlphaTauri

NUERBURGRING, Germany — Mercedes will not provide engines to Red Bull and AlphaTauri the moment Honda pulls out of Components One at the end of following calendar year, motorsport head Toto Wolff stated on Friday. The Austrian, also principal and component-proprietor of the Mercedes F1 staff, told reporters at the Eifel Grand Prix that there was no spare capacity.

Mercedes currently provide engines to their is effective staff, to Racing Stage and Williams, and will also be functioning with McLaren from following season. Ferrari provide their very own staff, Haas and Alfa Romeo.

Honda announced very last 7 days they have been pulling out as an motor company.

Requested regardless of whether Mercedes would be open up to providing Red Bull, Wolff replied: “No … we are nearly in a condition that we are unable to make ability units for all of us. So there is no capacity.”

The only other remaining supplier is Renault, who will only have their very own renamed Alpine staff following calendar year and will be obliged underneath the rules to provide engines to Red Bull if requested.

Renault staff boss Cyril Abiteboul stated Red Bull had yet to contact the French maker, with whom they fell out following profitable four successive titles amongst 2010-13.

Red Bull staff boss Christian Horner stated all possibilities would be deemed but the two Red Bull-owned teams would need to have to have the exact same ability unit supplier.
