Ferrari reveals 2014 engine dyno test

Ferrari 2012Ferrari has revealed that its new 2014 engine is running on the dyno at its Maranello factory.

With Formula 1 engine manufacturers Renault and Mercedes already believed to have begun bench tests of their new power-units, Ferrari's head of engine and electronics Luca Marmorini says that his outfit is also well-advanced with its work.

"It is a very challenging period for power train people," Marmorini told the official Ferrari website.

"We are working on the 2012 power train and the rest of the season is very important, but no-one mentions we also have to work on the 2013 engine with a new installation which is big work.

"At the same time, we have the V6, and the first of the V6s is running on the dyno. It is an interesting project."

While Ferrari, Renault and Mercedes continue efforts on the new turbo-charged engines, the fate of independent supplier PURE remains uncertain - after the company suspended operations earlier this month because of funding difficulties.

It is also unclear yet as to whether or not Cosworth will elect to invest in expensive development of a 2014 engine either which could leave F1 with just three manufacturers for the start of that season.
