Renault unveils 2014 V6 Formula 1 engine

Paris, June 21 (IANS) Engine manufacturers Renault unveiled its 2014 turbocharged Formula 1 engine here Friday.

The firm has named it Energy F1 as it is Renault's first design for the sport's new turbocharged, energy-recovery technology era.

"From 2014 we will bring engines to the fore and redress the balance in F1. An engine is the heart of a car. From next year it returns to the heart of our sport," four-time World Champion turned Renault ambassador Alain Prost was quoted as saying by autosport.com.
