Red Bull issues another quit threat

Daniel Ricciardo and Helmut Marko are not laughing about their current engine situation

Not that this is anything new but Red Bull issued another threat to quit Formula One today in Singapore. Speaking to Sky Sports News Helmut Mark stated in no uncertain terms the four-time Constructors' Champions are ready to quit F1 should they not secure a competitive engine in 2016.

"The decision is done. If we don't have a competitive engine we will leave Formula 1," said Marko. Talking about the possibility of a Ferrari engine the head of Red Bull's driver development program noted "I don't want to go into details, but what's clear is we want a competitive engine, because with these regulations you saw at Monza we were two seconds behind.

"Today we are ahead, but maybe that will change tomorrow, but we will be very near the front. As long as you don't have a power unit that which can compete it doesn't make sense."
