F1 switches from 2.4 liter V8 power to 1.6 liter turbo V6 power next year. There are also changes to fuel delivery and the KERS battery system. Thankfully Ferrari is here to walk you through all of them.


This very informative video that tells us roughly nothing about the inner workings of Ferrari's new F1 V6 does tell us a lot about the impact the technical regulations are having on how they've designed the 2014 car and engine.

KERS will now be much more powerful, with a boost giving roughly taking three seconds off every lap instead of the smaller amount now. Reliability is a big concern, as are the fuel flow and capacity restrictions. And, as they note, it'll be interesting to see how drivers go about managing the relationship between KERS and the turbos.


Next season should be exciting. Or dominated by Sebastian Vettel. One of the other.
