Ferrari named brand new V6 turbo engine is called Ferrari 059/3. Today reveal the engine replica, through a 3D animation. The sound, however, is the real one. ‘And once out of the rehearsal room, which is a bit ‘ an anechoic chamber, it will be even more full, ‘explained Luca Marmorini, director of the engine department in Maranello.
The 056 was the last naturally aspirated V8 used in the race. The 057 was the name of another engine then stopped by freezing the rules in 2007, the design of the 058 4-cylinder initially wanted by the FIA .
The new engine seems more ‘ real ‘ prefiguration shown by Mercedes and Renault. We note the turbo to the rear end, the KERS connected to the transmission on the left side, the front big battery only.
James Allison, Technical Director, exclude the possibility that there are many people in the gray new rules: “For me it is quite clear, but it is clear that a regulation so new, everyone will work to find the limits.” Marmorini suggests that a possible area of intervention may be the second electric motor, the one connected to the turbo, which has a predetermined power: “The teams will choose whether to use it to recover more energy or to move the turbo.”
