Marussia Switching To Ferrari Engines

Marussia have announced a new technical partnership with Ferrari that will see their cars powered by the Italian firm’s engines beginning with the 2014 Formula One season.

The team has used Cosworth engines since they joined the grid in 2010.

As a Ferrari customer team, under the new 2014 regulations Marussia will be supplied with the Scuderia’s new 1.6-litre, V6 engine, plus their Energy Recovery System, full transmission and all related ancillary systems.

“The importance of this development to our team cannot be overstated,” said Marussia CEO Andy Webb. “Not only will we benefit from a customer supply from the most successful engine manufacturer in Formula One’s history, but this also provides further confirmation, if it were needed, of our commitment to the sport and determination to maintain our progression towards our long-term ambitions.

Marussia’s announcement means 2014 is expected to feature three Ferrari-powered teams (the other customer squad being Sauber), while 2013 will be Cosworth’s last season as an F1 engine supplier for the foreseeable future.
