Renault unveils 2014 V6 Formula 1 engine

Jun 21 2013, 9:30am CDT | by

Paris, June 21 (IANS) Engine manufacturers Renault unveiled its 2014 turbocharged Formula 1 engine here Friday.

Paris, June 21 — Engine manufacturers Renault unveiled its 2014 turbocharged Formula 1 engine here Friday.

The firm has named it Energy F1 as it is Renault's first design for the sport's new turbocharged, energy-recovery technology era.

"From 2014 we will bring engines to the fore and redress the balance in F1. An engine is the heart of a car. From next year it returns to the heart of our sport," four-time World Champion turned Renault ambassador Alain Prost was quoted as saying by autosport.com.

Renault already has a deal in place to continue as engine suppliers to constructors' champion Red Bull next year as well as Toro Rosso, which has so far used Ferrari engines.

The French firm will also power Caterham while Williams is parting company with Renault to run Mercedes engines and current Renault squad Lotus's 2014 power unit plans have yet to be announced.

Le directeur technique de l’écurie Williams, Pat Symonds, ne tarit d’ailleurs pas d’éloges à son sujet. "A de nombreux égards, Valtteri me rappelle Alons ...

Fiabilité des moteurs : qui a utilisé quoi ?

Jul 26 2014 4:24am CDT | Source: f1i.com

The Goodwood Festival of Speed - Day 2
A la veille du Grand Prix Hongrie, voici le point sur la fiabilité et l'usure des composants des différents propulseurs. Comme précédemment, les pilotes propulsés par un moteur Ferrari ou Renault ont utilisé davantages de pièces que leurs homologues équipés d'un V6 Mercedes. On s'attend, chez certains motoristes, à utiliser sept blocs d'ici la fin de la saison, avec les pénalités afférentes. Car on le sait, si u ...
