How Red Bull can take its destiny into its own hands

Honda's impending exit from Formula 1 could provide an opportunity for Red Bull to get itself on terms with Mercedes - if only it could take it, argues Mark Gallagher

With Honda's Hokey Cokey Formula 1 strategy set to enter its latest 'out' phase, Messrs. Horner, Newey and Marko have some thinking to do before presenting Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz with a strategy which doesn't involve his Formula 1 teams playing second fiddle to a manufacturer outfit.

Mercedes is not interested in playing ball, while a customer unit from Maranello comes with no performance guarantees and a limited warranty. In theory that leaves Renault, the company with which Red Bull had a very public 'conscious uncoupling' after years of growing apart.
