Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso have signed deals to run Renault power-units for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
Red Bull currently run Renault’s 1.6L turbocharged V6 hybrid power-trains as TAG Heuer meanwhile the Faenza-based squad Toro Rosso currently use 2015-spec Ferrari power-units.
Team Principal Christian Horner stated: "We are delighted to extend our partnership which has proved very successful over time. After the reconstruction that Renault has undertaken, clear progress has been made which has made it logical to continue with the TAG Heuer badged engine."
President of Renault Sport Jerome Stoll continued: "We are very pleased to partner with two such strong teams as Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso. Having competitive partners demonstrates the confidence both have in the improved Renault power unit and in our organisation as a whole."
As part of the deal over the next two seasons, both Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso will receive the French manufacturer's latest spec of power units but can also name the engine as any brand they want.
Renault's continued partnership with Red Bull Racing is on the road to becoming one of the most successful chassis-engine relationships in Grand Prix racing. The two linked up during the 2.4L V8 era in 2007 and have since won four consecutive world drivers and constructors championships from 2010-13 and claimed 51 victories.
Renault recently supplied Toro Rosso when the new 1.6L V6 turbocharged hybrid era began in 2014 and also in 2015.
