F1 » F1 to switch to V6 engines – but not until 2014


FIA President Jean Todt has yielded to the pressure applied by Bernie Ecclestone and F1's manufacturers in agreeing to delay the introduction of the sport's new engine formula until 2014 - and to go with V6 power rather than just four cylinders

What a complete waste. When will the fans realize that they are being denied the greatest development spectacle of all time by FOTA? First killing the uber-regs for 2010, now killing new relevant engine tech.

so Renault won't be happy after reportedly already pending £20M on developing the Inline 4.

With Mercedes also on the brink of building and testing in September.

What a waste of money

pc. a turbo allows more efficient use of fuel, and relieves some of the back pressure on an engine. production cars are downsizing engines from 2l na to 1.4 turbos. these will produce equal or more power but improve fuel consumption thus reducing emissions. that is possibly the rationale behind the original fia decision. as you can see, the 2.4 v8s and the 1.6 turbos will give the same bhp, even though the turbos could probably give up to double the existing figure.
