The team wants to keep the "status quo" that seems to be working just superbly, since another Championship win might be just around the corner.

MONZA, Italy, Sept 9, 2011 (AFP) - Formula One team champions Red Bull on Friday extended their successful engine-supply deal with Renault for five more
years to 2016.

The previous agreement between the two was due to end in 2012.

Red Bull team chief Christian Horner said: "We're obviously thrilled to announce this significantly enhanced agreement with the Renault-Nissan Alliance, who we have enjoyed a close working relationship with since 2007.

"Renault Sport F1 has always been very straightforward to work with, which has been a contributing factor to the on-going success of the Red Bull Racing
Renault partnership."

Jean-Francois Caubet, managing director of Renault Sport F1, said: "The V6 power units due to be introduced from 2014 represent a huge undertaking and to
have the input, resources and in-house F1 car expertise of Red Bull Technology will help the team at Renault Sport F1 specify, design and develop a
competitive unit."

Renault engines will also power the Renault team, Williams and Team Lotus in F1 next year.
