FIA confirms 2013 engine rules

The FIA has agreed radical changes to the engine rules, to begin in the 2013 season. At a meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Monaco today, it was announced that the council approved the new engine specification proposed by the F1 commission which will see the introduction of four-cylinder, 1.6 litre turbocharged engines for the start of the 2013 season.

The engines will be limited to 12,000 rpm, and the FIA hopes to see a 35% reduction in fuel consumption. For 2013 drivers will be limited to 5 engines per season, and in years following that will be limited to four engines.
