Engine options 'limited' for Red Bull

Britain's most successful Formula One team have failed to win a race since 2012 and are a long way from challenging Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull. However, although not confirmed yet, speculation suggests Renault could pull the plug next year - two years ahead of schedule.

Renault's contract with Red Bull ends after 2018, and as that relationship has been nowhere near harmonious with numerous complaints about reliability from Red Bull, they've opted not to extend it.

The team had been expected to join their junior team Toro Rosso in buying Honda engines but Horner ruled that out after the first practice session of the Singapore Grand Prix. "It's always good to have options".

The popular Aussie has had a frustrating season to date, including a flop due to mechanical failure in Melbourne and a massive grid penalty in Italy for a number of changes to his vehicle, which could ultimately impact his future at Red Bull.

"I know the challenge in qualifying will be a potentially stronger Ferrari and Mercedes but I'm confident we can stay up there and fight with them at the top".

"There's been talk about a German manufacturer [Porsche] coming in - that's not going to happen", Horner added.

"We have a relationship with a vehicle firm".

"Aston Martin can't come in now but it is something they are considering for 2021".

Speculation persists that Porsche could yet also emerge as potential buyers of Red Bull.

The stakes could barely be any higher.
