Presentation of the new Ferrari power unit - video

Video presented by Shell shows how ERS works, which is one of the big innovations in the 2014 F1 V6 Turbo engine.

Since the start of the 2014 new Ferrari engine project, Shell has blended more than 50 versions of the Shell V-Power racing fuel for bench testing, with the final few candidates currently undergoing the final stages of evaluation ahead of the first track sessions of 2014.

Speaking about the 2014 changes, Andrew Foulds, Shell Vice President Fuels Technology, commented: “FIA fuel and oil technical regulations remain unchanged in 2014, but the new engine’s appetite and power band is radically different from its predecessor, which has allowed us the freedom to explore and innovate in new areas. Of equal relevance to us as the change in engine configuration is the limit to the amount of fuel that can be used in each race."
