WMSC | New F1 Engines

From 2013 F1 engine capacity will be reduced from 2.4 litre V8s to 1.6 four cylinder.

There have been cries of complaint from several quarters that this will result in a sport bereft of engine noise and power.  A particular reason given is that the rpm limit will reduce from 18,000 rpm to 12,000.

However please listen to a 1.5 litre 4 cylinder engine limited to 12,500 rpm - the 1980s BMW F1.

Intelligent exhaust tuning and limit state engineering will ensure that the spectacle will not be lost.
