Next year, F1 goes turbocharged again. Mercedes has already unveiled their engine that they hope will takeover the entire grid, and now it's Renault's turn to unveil their little turbo monster.


Engine regs are drastically different for F1 in 2014, with the naturally aspirated 2.4 liter V8s making way for turbocharged 1.6-liter direct-injected V6s with a new energy recovery system that adds 160 horsepower, or double the power of KERS.


People have been thinking that the new turbos would lose that F1 flavor that was very present in the V8 era, but it seems like these new engines will have a sound all their own (Renault's site has been slow to load, I assume a number of people have wanted to listen to the car). Now we just need to figure out how they work.
