Switching to Cosworth power for 2010 is an option for Red Bull Racing, the energy drink's motor racing advisor Helmut Marko has admitted.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reports that the team, whose move to its preferred engine supplier Mercedes has been vetoed by McLaren, is not considering staying with Renault next season.

The publication said Red Bull officials are in contact with Cosworth, who also look likely to supply Williams next season.

Cosworth is an increasingly attractive partner for teams, given that the independent British outfit is the only F1 engine supplier currently allowed to be working extensively on its 2010 design.

The outfit is retuning its 2006 V8 unit for the new 8 engines per season regulations as well as the mandatory 18,000rpm rev limit, while the manufacturer teams are in the midst of the development freeze.

"Cosworth is an alternative that we are looking at," Marko said at Suzuka two weeks ago. It is believed Red Bull's design about its 2010 engine supplier is imminent.
