Marussia have announced a brand new technical partnership with Ferrari, who will supply them with engines and gearboxes, the full powertrain solution from 2014 onwards. Currently being supplied by Cosworth, Marussia will make the switch for next season, as all the regulations surrounding the engine change.
CEO of Marussia, Andy Webb, says of the new deal: “The importance of this development to our team cannot be overstated. Not only will we benefit from a customer supply from the most successful engine manufacturer in F1’s history, but this also provides further confirmation, if it were needed, of our commitment to the sport.”
The team also announced the departure of their consultant Pat Symonds, who has been advising Marussia since midway through the 2011 season. Pat has moved on to the Williams team, whilst Marussia says they “look forward to announcing its own plans for the continued development of its growing technical operation in due course.”
