Renault Sport’s Formula One director Jean-Michel Jalinier has confirmed that the French manufacturer will supply four teams with engines next season whilst speaking at an event in France.
Currently, Renault provide Red Bull, Lotus, Williams and Caterham with engines, and this number will remain stable as Toro Rosso replace Williams in 2014, with the latter opting to take on Mercedes power units.
“We very likely will end up with four teams,” Jalinier was quoted as saying by Reuters.
“The discussions with Lotus and Caterham have progressed. It’s almost done with them, so there’s a high probability that we end up with four in 2014.”
Caterham have already confirmed that they are keen on extending their deal with Renault, whilst Lotus are thought to be considering a change in 2015 when Honda re-enter the sport with McLaren.
Additionally, Red Bull are poised to rebrand their Renault power units as ‘Infiniti’ to coincide with their agreement with the luxury division of Nissan. The team, currently running as Infiniti Red Bull Racing, would become Red Bull-Infiniti should the deal be confirmed.
