Ecclestone: 2014 F1 engines sound terrible

Published

on

Formula 1 plans to set change from current 2.4-litre V8 engines to 1.6-litre turbo-charged V6s in 2014 Formula 1 season.

The new engine component and essentials are designed to be far more environmentally friendly but F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone worried about the 2014 1.6-litre turbo-charged V6 engines sound and he called the sound is terrible.

“I listened to the noise of the engines in Maranello the other day, the new engine and the old engine, and even (Ferrari President) Luca di Montezemolo said it sounded terrible and didn’t like it,” Bernie Ecclestone told The Hindustan Times.

“(Jean Todt, FIA President) will get rid of it. I think Luca is also saying we should suspend it for two or three years. I think it is sensible to get rid of it and stick with what we’ve got.”

“It is much cheaper than the new one. It probably could be 30 percent of the price. I blame the FIA for this stupid engine formula. It really wasn’t (Todt’s) fault; Mosley (former FIA President) started the engine and then he got carried away.”
