Red Bull Racing to change engines?

There are rumours that Red Bull Racing may want to change engines next year with the suggestion being that the team could switch to Mercedes-Benz. The success of Brawn GP has shown that the engines are highly competive and Mercedes-Benz is particularly interested in the team because it would give it access to rising German star Sebastian Vettel, who is otherwise tied into a Red Bull contract. Mercedes-Benz is keen to expand its engine supplies to avoid lay-offs in its engine division while at the same time strengthening its F1 position.
