FIA permitted V6 turbo engines for 2014

Published

on

June.30 – The Formula 1 governing body (FIA) approved V6 turbo engines to the sport in 2014. Formula 1 Commission met freshly and takes a decision to scrap the ratified 4-cylinder rules for 2013 in favour of add to the cylinder count by two and stoppage the introduction by a year. There had been some disagree from Ferrari about using four cylinder engine and Mercedes and Cosworth both voiced concerns about cost. All the teams and engine manufacturers are now understood to be behind the new rules.

“Following a fax vote by its members, the World Motor Sport Council has ratified the engine regulations recently drawn up in consultation with the main stakeholders in Formula One,” read an FIA press release.

“The new power plant will be a V6 1.6 turbo unit with energy recovery systems. This new formula will come into effect as from the start of the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship season.”

And a new on the official F1 (Formula1.com) website said the new engines would be as powerful as the existing V8s with Energy Recovery Systems (ERS) and turbo charging – turbo compounding has been discussed but was not mentioned – making up the shortfall. Rev limits have not yet been confirmed, but Adrian Newey told BBC Sport in Valencia that they would be “around 14,000 or 16,000”.
