Baku - Red Bull has until the end of the month to decide between Renault or Honda power for 2019.

Official talks between the energy drink owned team and Honda kicked off in Baku.

According to FIA rules, teams must indicate which engine supplier they will work with for the forthcoming season by 15 May.

"After 12 years of a successful cooperation, we are ready to continue to work with Red Bull," he said.
