Todt admits Red Bull engine talks

Mon, 2 October 2006, 09:22

Jean Todt says discussions about possibly moving the 2007 Ferrari customer engine deal from Red Bull Racing to Toro Rosso are still taking place.

The Ferrari boss was believed to have answered ‘no’ to the energy drink company’s request to alter the contract, after Red Bull penned a separate supply deal with Renault.

But he admitted in Shanghai that the question is not yet resolved, amid suggestions that Red Bull would prefer to transfer Todt’s V8 power plants to the sister team.

”We have been discussing,” the Frenchman told reporters on Sunday.

”In the meantime we have signed an agreement for 2007 with Spyker, and in the coming days we will keep discussing with the Red Bull organisation.”

Principal Todt, meanwhile, rejected internet reports that said the Spyker contract includes the supply of Ferrari engines for Spyker road cars.

He insisted: ”The agreement is only formula one, exclusively formula one.”
