LONDON, England - Lotus and Renault have at last announced a Formula 1 engine deal "for 2014 - and beyond".

The UK-based team had already begun winter testing with the French brand's new turbo V6 'power unit' but negotiations between the pair had been long and, apparently, difficult.

STRONGER TIES

However Renault Sport F1 president Jean-Michel Jalinier said: "The relationship has gone from strength to strength over the past few years. This is illustrated in no better way than the excellent – and very close – collaboration on the 2014 car, which is more technically complex than any previous designs."

F1's other Renault-powered teams are Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Caterham.
