Force India in talks to obtain Ferrari engines 2 January, 2013 Jan.2 (GMM) Force India, currently powered by Mercedes Formula One engines, is in negotiations to revert to Ferrari engine power, according to Italy’s La Stampa newspaper. The talks between the Silverstone based team and Ferrari are “under way”, correspondent Cristiano Chiavegato claims. Force India is currently powered by Mercedes’ V8 engine, but Vijay Mallya’s team began its F1 efforts with customer power supplied by fabled Ferrari. Central to the new talks, according to La Stampa, is the Ferrari-linked French driver Jules Bianchi, who was Force India’s reserve in 2012 and is now reportedly first in line for the race seat alongside Paul di Resta this year.
