The World Motor Sport Council has confirmed that the 2014 F1 formula will feature V6 1.6 turbo powerplants

A brief statement issued tonight read:

Following a fax vote by its members, the World Motor Sport Council has ratified the engine regulations recently drawn up in consultation with the main stakeholders in Formula One. The new power plant will be a V6 1.6 turbo unit with energy recovery systems.

This new formula will come into effect as from the start of the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship season.

Meeting at the weekend in Valencia the teams' technical heads suggested that the rev limit of the engines be raised from 12,000 rpm to 15,000. While this was agreed, it is still not acceptable according to Australian Grand Prix boss Ron Walker, who says he has the backing of 17 circuits.
