Banbury, UK-based Formula One team Marussia has confirmed that it will use Ferrari engine and gearboxes for the 2014 season, when the series will switch to 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 units under new FIA regulations.
“Scuderia Ferrari is pleased to announce that Marussia F1 Team is now part of the group of its Formula 1 customer teams. The long term technical collaboration is for the supply of the entire powertrain as prescribed in the 2014 regulations,” Scuderia Ferrari announced today.

Marussia F1 joined the series in 2012, but failed to score one single point in 29 races. They are the only Formula One team using Cosworth V8 engines this season.

"The Marussia F1 Team is delighted to be entering into a technical partnership with Scuderia Ferrari for the supply of a full powertrain from 2014,” said Marussia CEO Andy Webb. “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 Formula One's history, but this also provides further confirmation, if it were needed, of our commitment to the sport and determination to maintain our progression towards our long-term ambitions.”
