Formula One backmarker Marussia will hopefully see its performance improve next season when the team starts using engines supplied by Ferrari. Marussia, which is tied for last place in the 2013 F1 Constructors’ Championship, currently relies on engines supplied by Cosworth, but with the British engine supplier pulling out of F1 next year Marussia has been forced to turn to a new supplier.

Ferrari will supply the engine, energy recovery system, transmission and all related ancillary systems for the Russian team. Note, Ferrari remains the only engine supplier yet to reveal its new 2014-spec engine, which like rival units will be a turbocharged 1.6-liter V-6 aided by an energy recovery system.  

Other suppliers include Mercedes-Benz and Renault.

Marussia has also confirmed that its technical director Pat Symonds has switched to the Williams F1 Team, where he will fill the same role.

Symonds, who has a 30-year history in F1, will start his new role at Williams this August. He replaces Mike Coughlan who has resigned from Williams and is yet to announce his future plans.
