Fighting Intensifies Over 2013 Engine Rules

renault

There’s no question that Bernie Ecclestone and Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo are right here. Four-cylinder engines for F1 make no sense and NO NOISE! “We must not lose the DNA of Formula One,” Italian Montezemolo told Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport magazine, scoffing at the fact F1 is moving to four-cylinders.

A major revolution in Formula 1 engine and car design scheduled for the 2013 season is under threat. The plan is to replace the current 2.4-litre V8 engines with 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbos fitted with extensive environmental technology and for the cars to be made more efficient. Except that the changes . . . might not happen — at least not in two years’ time. They are already formally part of the regulations for 2013. But F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone has recently given voice to a view within the sport that the changes should either be postponed or abandoned. And he has a powerful ally in the shape of Ferrari.
