Cosworth not ruling out V6 turbo engine supply

28.05.2010 Istanbul, Turkey,  A Cosworth engineer working with a Cosworth Engine - Formula 1 World Championship, Rd 7, Turkish Grand Prix © Copyright: Cosworth - Editorial copyright freeOct.5 (GMM) Cosworth has rejected reports that it will definitely bow out of Formula One after 2013, and would consider supplying turbo engines for the new era

It has been suggested that the independent British engine marque, currently supplying V8s to Marussia and HRT, is not in a position to commit to a costly V6 development programme for the radical 2014 rules.

But when asked about 2014, Cosworth’s F1 chief Kim Spearman said on Friday: “If we can find a commercially sustainable way to provide a competitive platform for some potential customers, we’d like to do that.

“We are in useful negotiations with customers and hopefully we’ll find a way to be in.”

He confirmed that Cosworth has already started work on a 2014 project.

“Oh yes,” said Spearman. “We’ve been working on the engine for 18 months.”
