The 2014 season will see teams ditch the existing 2.4-litre V8 normally-aspirated engines for new 1.6-litre V6s with sophisticated energy recovery technologies.

President of Renault Sport F1 Jean-Michel Jalinier introduced the new power unit, named Energy F1: “From next year, one of greatest challenges in F1 will be to maximise energy efficiency and fuel economy while maintaining the power output and performance expected of F1 cars.” [Source]

About Valtteri Bottas

After winning three prestigious kart titles in 2006, Valtteri moved into single-seaters, winning the 2008 Formula Renault Eurocup and the 2008 Formula Renault Northern European Cup. In June 2009 he won the Masters of Formula 3 at Zandvoort, a title he won again in 2010 and he remains the only driver ever to have won the title twice. Valtteri raced in F3 in 2010, securing two victories en route to third place in the championship. He joined Williams F1 that year as test driver, continuing this role into 2011 when he also won the GP3 Series at the first attempt. In 2012 Valtteri became the team’s Official Reserve Driver and 2013 will see him progress to a race seat with the Williams F1 Team.
