Toro Rosso hits back at engine supplier Renault as row escalates

Toro Rosso hits back at engine supplier Renault as row escalates

The situation is playing out against the wider backdrop of the hard relationship between Red Bull and Renault.

An angry Toro Rosso team responded by releasing a strongly-worded press release which Renault felt called into question their integrity.

Toro Rosso now sits five points clear of Renault, but has scored just one point since Singapore, allowing Renault to catch up.

The current spat is the latest in a long list of disagreements between Renault and Toro Rosso's parent company Red Bull, and Abiteboul was spotted in a heated debate in the middle of the paddock with Red Bull boss Helmut Marko on Saturday morning.

Toro Rosso issued a strongly-worded statement ruling out their auto or operational processes as a factor.

"We are both upset but who started with all this nonsense? Cyril yesterday with his stupid interview", Tost told Sky F1.

"I knew there was something wrong going on because every lap they were like "yeah, oil transfer, oil transfer" - and I knew we had old-spec MGU-K so I was like "fuck, hopefully it's going to last until the end", Gasly said. No, we don't accept it.

"Objectively we don't have the performance to fight with them at the moment so we need to make sure in the race anything can happen so if there are opportunities that come to us we need to make sure we take them".

"[Why] should I apologise?"

"At the beginning of the first stint I could stay quite close to Carlos [Sainz Jr] - and then after they picked up the pace and we were quite limited with the degradation, so I don't think we could've done much better".

Renault advisor Alain Prost confirmed to Sky F1 ahead of Qualifying that they would continue to supply Toro Rosso for the remainder of the season.

Toro Rosso and engine supplier Renault are locked in a war of words after the Red Bull junior team suffers yet more failures in Brazil.

"There has never been any question that we have not been treated fairly and equitably by our engine supplier. And that is still true today".

"There are never coincidences in this sport", added Abiteboul.

Toro Rosso were stung by comments from Renault F1 boss Cyril Abiteboul, with the Frenchman wondering whether their spate of recent engine problems had something to do with how the team used the power units.

"Since the summer break Toro Rosso has suffered continuous power unit related failures, and the resulting grid penalties has cost the team points and relative positions in the Constructors' championship". "Nothing has been changed or altered in this installation during the 2017 season, other than cooling improvements mid-season", the team said.

Toro Rosso principal Franz Tost said the shortage of new parts was the problem, with the team having to take components from one power unit to the next.
