The FIA ​​is making progress on the new customer engine

The veto of Ferrari filed to refuse a price cap on customer engines and gearboxes had recently led the FIA ​​to study the possibility of introducing a standard customer engine at low cost by 2017. The Federation seems well and truly committed to this path since a document published on its website invites potential candidates to make themselves known before November 23.

“The FIA ​​has decided to launch a consultation among engine manufacturers in order to potentially identify for the 2017, 2018 and 2019 seasons of the Championship, an exclusive alternative engine manufacturer who will be the only one authorized to supply this engine to competitors entered in the World Championship. The FIA ​​is now asking interested candidates to come forward. »

The appendices to this document also mention the fact that the engine manufacturer must be independent of a major car manufacturer. A twin-turbo V6 architecture could be considered.
