Caterham owner Tony Fernandes has confirmed that his team will stick with Renault engines next season.

Caterham has been powered by the French squad since 2011 and will continue their partnership into the new era in 2014.

Caterham's eponymous road car company has a partnership with Renault subsidiary Alpine that will see the companies collaborating to produce sports cars.

"We have a car partnership with Renault," said Fernandes.

"Our F1 car is going to be replicated in a road car, so you see a Renault engine with DRS and KERS in a Caterham."

"We are a long-term partner."

As well as Caterham, Renault is set to continue powering reigning champions Red Bull into the new engine era. Sister team Toro Rosso is also set to switch from Ferrari to Renault engines next season.

Another of Renault's current clients, Williams, is set to switch to Mercedes engines from 2014.
