Mercedes unveils 2014 V6 1.6-litre Turbo Charged F1 Engine

One of the major Formula 1 engine supplier Mercedes-Benz has revealed the first picture of the 2014 F1 engine. They added that 2014 F1 machine are going to be loud, but they think cute sounding.

Chief of Mercedes’ Formula 1 engine arm Andy Cowell, says that 2014 V6 1.6-litre Turbo Charged F1 Engine will also deliver much more torque, especially on the exit of the corners

“The engines are going to be loud, but I think sweet sounding,” he said on Friday, Autosport reports.

“The frequency will be higher and, with the turbocharger running at 125,000rpm, they will be loud. When you are stood next to it on the dyno it is not quiet and you need ear defenders. There will be a new quality to the racing too. It will edge towards a thinking drivers’ formula to get the most from the car and the available fuel energy.

“The engines will also deliver much more torque – especially on the exit of the corners. Cars with more power than grip coming out of the corners – that is something that we all enjoy. They will also put F1 back at the cutting edge of new technology – which is what the fans want.” Andy Cowell added.

“We are putting the motor back in motorsport, but to what extent we will only know in 2014,” he said. “It will definitely have more of an influence. Today it is difficult to be quick without KERS – for 2014 it will be impossible to go racing without ERS.” Cowell said.
