Ferrari will be the new engine supplier for Scuderia Toro Rosso from 2016 onwards. According to our sources from within the Toro Rosso team, they have struck a deal with Ferrari for 2015 engines in 2016. An announcement is expected shortly.
A Toro Rosso source told F1Today.net: "The team has secured Ferrari engines for the 2016 season. We will be driving with a 2015 specification engine, which has proven to be a fast and reliable package." Toro Rosso was in a hurry to sign a deal with a new engine supplier, as they are on a tight schedule with the development of their new car.
Red Bull Racing has not decided on an engine supplier for next year yet. The Austrian team is still negotiating with Ferrari as well as with Mercedes. Red Bull Racing would love to gain acceds to a 2016 spec Mercedes engine, but remains to be seen if the German car maker is willing to supply the same engines as their own factory team.
