Overview: The engine line-up for 2014

Overview: The engine line-up for 2014

16 July 2013 – Formula 1 will experience one of its biggest technical overhauls next season, with V8 engines being replaced by turbocharged 1.6-litre V6 powerplants. Ahead of the changes, GPUpdate.net has put together a list of confirmed engine agreements.

Red Bull Renault

Red Bull and Renault – winners of the past three Drivers' and Constructors' crowns – will remain a force until at least 2016, with an extended deal being signed in 2011.

Ferrari – Ferrari

As has been the case since the first official Grand Prix back in 1950, Ferrari designs its own cars and engines. So long as the sport continues, this will not change.

McLaren – Mercedes

McLaren will remain with long-time suppliers Mercedes for the beginning of the new technical era in 2014, making use of the brand's engine and Energy Recovery System (ERS). From the following season, the Woking-based outfit reunites with Honda.

Lotus – TBC

Although an agreement is yet to be announced, Lotus is likely to remain a Renault-powered team in 2014. The two parties have been together through various guises.

Mercedes – Mercedes

Like factory rivals Ferrari, Mercedes sources its power in-house. The German brand designs and develops its engines at a high performance engine centre in Brixworth.

Force India – Mercedes

Although a switch to Ferrari power was mooted pre-season, before Maranello-backed Jules Bianchi was turned down in favour of Adrian Sutil, Force India ultimately stuck to Mercedes power and signed a new agreement for 2014. The Silverstone-based outfit will be supplied with engine units, gearboxes, hydraulic systems and ERS.

Sauber – TBC

Sauber's biggest concern in recent months has been trying to ensure its future in the sport. With this confirmed through a tripartite agreement with Russian companies, attentions can return to finalising its engine plans for the 2014 campaign. As a long-term Ferrari customer, it would be logical for the Swiss outfit to remain loyal.

Williams – Mercedes

Following his decision to leave Williams in favour of Mercedes, Toto Wolff played a key role in putting together an engine agreement for the Grove-based team. From 2014 onwards, Sir Frank Williams' squad will run with the German manufacturer's V6 units.

Toro Rosso – Renault

Having entered the sport as Red Bull's 'junior team' in 2006, Toro Rosso is preparing to change its engine supplier for the second time. On the back of one season with Cosworth and seven with Ferrari, the outfit will use Renault powerplants in 2014.

Caterham TBC

Although Caterham has not made an official announcement regarding its engine partner for 2014, it looks set to remain with Renault. Caterham F1 founder Tony Fernandes insisted back in May that the team is "a long-term partner."

Marussia – Ferrari

Marussia is the most recent team to confirm its engine supplier for the 2014 season, switching from Cosworth to Ferrari power. With current pilot Jules Bianchi a long-time member of Ferrari's young driver programme, the tie-up was a natural outcome.
