MONTE CARLO, Monaco - The Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso Formula 1 team has announced that it will switch from Ferrari to Renault engines for 2014.

The long-term deal means the team, based in Italy, will have the same engines and gearboxes as its parent F1 champion team.


F1's engine rules are changing for 2014 with the introduction of a V6 1.6 turbo engine with energy recovery systems replacing the current V8.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said the Toro Rosso deal "made perfect sense" and "would enable synergies between Red Bull and Renault to continue to grow".

Red Bull would remain the development partner for the new V6 turbo engine, Renault said.
