Ferrari's new Formula One engine, which is developed to comply with new FIA regulations introduced starting with the 2014 season, could be used by the Italians in next year's 24 Hours of Le Mans race as well.
Speaking to Italian newspaper La Stampa, Scuderia Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali said the company is considering "some interesting projects" for the new turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, but declined any details on the subject.

"The new turbo engine for introduction in formula one next year would allow some interesting projects, but at the moment I cannot say more," Domenicali said.

Starting next season, Formula One cars will be powered by turbocharged V6 engines. The new more fuel efficient powerplants will replace the current V8 mills developed and delivered by Renault, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Cosworth.
