Milton Keynes-based Formula One team Red Bull have ended speculation over their future in the sport by agreeing a deal to continue with Renault engines.

There were fears that the team may walk away from F1 after they scrapped their previous contract with Renault.

However, they have now negotiated a new agreement which will see them use Renault engines again next season.

The power unit won't carry the name of the French car manufacturer though and will instead be sponsored by the luxury watch brand TAG Heuer.

The Swiss watchmaker have ended a 31-year relationship with McLaren to switch to Red Bull.

"TAG Heuer and Red Bull are two transcendent brands which have both a passion for racing and a drive to do things differently, and this unique collaboration is further evidence of that.

TAG Heuer has been an icon in the world of Formula One for many years and we're delighted that they've chosen to continue their association with the sport by teaming up with us.

Our shared values of innovation and a desire to stand out from the crowd make this one of the most exciting partnerships in F1. We are also pleased to see Renault confirm its long-term commitment to F1 and would like to thank them for their contribution to the team since 2007.

Their technical partnership with Ilmor gives us confidence, and we look forward to the 2016 season."

– Christian Horner, Red Bull Team Principal
