BMW says no to Red Bull

This Grandprix.com article says (excerpts), The word on the street in Munich is that the management of BMW Motorsport has already told Red Bull Racing that it will not be supplying them with engines in 2006. If true, this is interesting as it either suggests that BMW is not keen to supply another team or it means that the company has done a deal with another team.

Cosworth is looking to continue in F1 with the aim being to supply Minardi with the new V8 engines which will be introduced next year. Cosworth may also want to keep Red Bull Racing as well if the Austrians cannot find a good alternative.

Cosworth has been undergoing restructuring in recent months with a new company called Cosworth Racing taking over the assets of the old Cosworth Racing. In addition Cosworth Racing's boss Tim Routsis has recently been given the job of looking after Pi Research, in addition to running the engine business. Both are now owned by Champ Car bosses Kevin Kalkhoven and Gerald Forsythe.
