We reported last week that, after being dogged by recurring reliability faults with its Magneti Marelli units last year, Red Bull had instructed engine supplier Renault to seek a new supplier.

Italian reports identified that new supplier as 'Tag'.

It seems those reports were actually referring to Techniques d'Avant Garde, or TAG -- the well-known McLaren-affiliated company.

The Auto Motor und Sport headline reads: "Red Bull reliable, thanks to McLaren".

The report said Renault confirmed the news, insisting that - no matter the supplier of components - Red Bull's French engine supplier remains responsible for the adaptation and installation of the alternator.
