Marussia wants own Formula One engines by 2016

Nikolai Fomenko told Rissian Autosport, that Marussia is moving towards having own Formula One engines.

Oct.10 (GMM) Marussia owner Nikolai Fomenko wants his F1 team to be powered by its own engines.

As current engine supplier Cosworth departs, the team announced in July it has agreed a 'long-term' deal to be powered by Ferrari's new turbo V6 from 2014.

But, citing the Russian edition of Autosport, the Russian news agency Ria Novosti quotes Fomenko as saying: "If we survive to the 2016 season, then I hope Marussia will have its own engines.

"We're moving towards that. It's our main aim," he added.

Marussia, a Russian supercar maker led by Fomenko, bought the F1 team from Virgin ahead of last season.
