Renault reveals race-intent 2014 power unit:the energy f1-2014

• Paris Air Show at Le Bourget:Renault presents its innovative new power unit designed to the new technical regulations to be used in the FIA Formula One World Championship from 2014 onwards.
• The new generation Power Unit is officially named the Energy F1-2014,reflecting synergies with the pioneering fuel efficient Energy engine range used inRenault road cars.
• The race-intent Power Unit revealed for the first time demonstrates a radical leap in Formula One powertrain technology, achieving groundbreaking fuel efficiency from its direct injection turbocharged engine allied to cutting edge energy recovery systems and electrification.

In 2014 Formula 1will enter a newera. After three years of planning and development, the most significant technical change to hit the sport in more than two decades is introduced. Engine regulations form the major part of the coming revolution, with the introduction of a new generation of power units that combine a 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems that will dramatically increase efficiency by harvesting energy dissipated as heat in the exhaust or brakes.

The maximum power of the new Power Unit will exceedthe output of current V8 F1 engines however fuel efficiency will be radically improved. Withonly 100kg permitted for the race, the new units will use 35% less fuel than their predecessors.

Alain Prost, Renault ambassador and four-times Formula 1 World Champion, said: “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.”

For several years, Renault has used its racing know-how to develop fuel efficient engines for road cars, notablyits Energy range. The objectives are clear: maintain or improve driving pleasure, vitality and acceleration with downsized enginesto achievelower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Renault has employed these principles in developing the F1 power unit, creating a complete, and genuine, circular development process between road and track.

For these reasons, Renault has named the F1 power unit series, the ‘Energy F1-2014',clearly illustrating that the F1 power unit shares the same DNA as its road-going cousins.

Jean-Michel Jalinier, President of Renault Sport F1: “From next year, one of greatest challenges in F1 will be to maximize energy efficiency and fuel economy while maintaining the power output and performance expected of F1 cars. Renault has pioneered this technologyin its road car engine range with the Energy series.”
