Marussia switches to Ferrari power for 2014

Marussia have confirmed they will switch from Cosworth to Ferrari engines next year when the new rules come into force.

The team announced a “long-term power train partnership” with Ferrari on Tuesday. They will receive the new 2014-specification V6 turbo engines with Energy Recovery Systems and transmission.

CEO Andy Webb said the deal “provides further confirmation, if it were needed, of our commitment to the sport and determination to maintain our progression towards our long-term ambitions”.

“The importance of this development to our team cannot be overstated,” he added.

“The new power train regulations being introduced next year represent the most substantial engine development within the sport since the introduction of the V8 formula and are all the more significant for the increased contribution of the Energy Recovery System.”

The deal spells an end for Cosworth’s F1 engine supply program. It returned to Formula One in 2010 with four teams: Lotus (now Caterham), Williams, HRT and Virgin (now Marussia). Lotus and Williams turned to Renault power and HRT collapsed at the end of last season.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Cosworth, with whom we have partnered since our debut season in 2010. We have shared an important part of our team’s journey together and Cosworth have been an integral part of our clear progression,” said Webb.
