FIA Announce 1.6l Four Cylinder Engines From 2013 – Team Orders Allowed From 2011

The FIA have today announced a range of new rules and regulations for the forthcoming seasons, the most notable of which being the new engine rules to take place from 2013.

The current 2.4l V8 engines, already disliked by fans, are being dropped in favour of 1.6l 4 cylinder engines with turbochargers.  Reduced fuel flow, a rev limit of 12,000rpms and compulsory energy recovery systems are being placed into the engines from the start of that season.  Formula One bosses have decided that being green and environmentally friendly is the most important thing, despite this being the one thing F1 fans said they did not care about in the most resent F1 fan survey.  Clearly those surveys are a total waste of time.

Allegedly the new engines are said to be able to reach high power outputs but some fans have already begun voicing their concerns over the move.  The cars will have a big boost pressure on the turbos to spool enough power, but the many are concerned that the engines will sound rubbish.

They are also limiting drivers to 5 engines per season, and gearboxes must last 5 races.  The pitlane is being shrunk in width, it can be shut by the race director at any time too.

From next season the team orders ban is being dropped following the Hockenheimring incident of last season.

The drivers will have significantly smaller engines from 2013
