F1 engine supplier Renault is frustrated by lack of recognition

Mar.8 (GMM) Renault has admitted it is "frustrated" its world-beating efforts in Formula One are going largely unnoticed.

For the past three seasons, despite having pulled out of F1 as a constructor, the French engine supplier has been a crucial part of Red Bull's title successes.

But operating chief Carlos Tavares admitted: "We are frustrated by the lack of recognition we get for beating the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes.

"It is true that I think we deserve better," he is quoted by autocar.co.uk.

"It is clear that we must create a bigger buzz around what we do."

In 2013, Red Bull's title sponsor is Infiniti, the luxury arm of the Renault-linked carmaker Nissan.

Renault also supplies engines to Lotus, Williams and Caterham.
