Caterham: New deal with Renault

Caterham have confirmed that they will continue to use Renault power for the next three seasons.

The partnership, which started in 2011, means the Leafield-based team will make use of the French manufacturer's new power unit. The unit, which comprises a 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged engine plus enhanced energy recovery systems, is in line with new regulations being introduced by the FIA next season.

Sunday's announcement is not a surprise given the partnership Caterham formed with Alpine, the French sportscar concern owned by Renault, in 2012 to develop a new range of lightweight roadcars.

"This announcement is obviously very good news for our F1 team and is a reflection of the deep bonds that have been created between our two businesses since 2011, particularly with the roadcar project we launched in 2012 between Caterham and Alpine, which is now at an advanced stage in development," Team Principal Cyril Abiteboul said.

"The 2014 season heralds a new era for F1 with our sport taking a positive stance in aligning itself with the technical changes in the global automotive industry, and Renault is right at the cutting edge of that development."
