Cosworth Delighted With F1 Return

The Cosworth engine name, synonymous with racing and sports cars is to return to Formula One after today’s 2010 Entry List announcement.

Cosworth were a rock of engine supply into Formula One both under their own moniker, and with the Ford brand name.  They left racing after a largely unsuccessful season with the Williams team in 2006.

However, the three new teams in F1, Campos, US F1 and Manor are all to use 2.4 V8 engines from the UK based manufacturer/.

"I am pleased that Cosworth’s exceptional mix of capabilities has enabled us to provide a solution for Formula 1 that sits so neatly with our existing operations in the aerospace and defence sectors," said Cosworth CEO Tim Routsis.

"Cosworth is proud not only to be able to provide a solution that will deliver the performance needed by these teams to compete in this most technologically challenging sport, but also to extend its long association with Formula 1 as a truly independent provider of competitive motive power.

"The engineering expertise we have accumulated over four decades in the sport has enabled us to broaden our reach into many different high-technology sectors.

"Today our engineering capabilities extend beyond racing, encompassing high-technology applications in the aerospace, defence, energy, marine and automotive industries. Cosworth has the necessary infrastructure to fulfil the supply of Formula 1 engines without affecting our other activities."

  1. no offense to cosworth they are a really successful team in the past especially in the 60s 70s but the last time they achieve a success was in 1994 with michael schumacher in a benetton. since then their engines weren’t really that much of a success. I just wished the new teams realized that or they might have bought engines in renault especially in campos where they regularly uses renault on GP2
