USF1 To Stick With Cosworth Despite Toyota Claims
USF1 bosses are backtracking on reports in American media that they were looking to terminate their contract with Cosworth over engine supply, in a bid to change over to Toyota.
The reports claimed that engineers believed the Toyota power units, used by the works team and also Williams since 2007, would be superior to Cosworth’s new V8 unit.
However Peter Windsor, boss of USF1 says they are very happy with Cosworth, and working alongside Bernard Ferguson who used to be Cosworth’s F1 director until 2007.
“The rumours are not true, I’m afraid,” claimed Windsor this morning
“We are fully committed to Cosworth – which is why we are delighted to have Bernard Ferguson working for us.”
Cosworth will power all 3 new teams and also return to powering the Williams F1 cars.
