2014 Formula One season









The 2014 Formula One season will be the 65th season of the Formula One World Championship, a motor racing championship for Formula One cars which is recognised by the sport's governing body, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), as the highest class of competition for open-wheel racing cars. Eleven teams and twenty-two drivers will compete in nineteen Grands Prix for the World Drivers' and World Constructors' Championships.

In 2014, the championship will see the introduction of a revised engine formula, in which the 2.4 litre V8 engine configuration—previously used between 2006 and 2013—will be replaced with a new formula specifying a 1.6 litre turbocharged V6 engine that incorporates an energy recovery system into its build. The 2014 calendar will feature substantial revisions from the 2013 season. The Russian Grand Prix will be held for the first time at the Sochi International Street Circuit in Sochi, and the Austrian Grand Prix will be revived, with the race to be held at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. The Indian Grand Prix will be discontinued for one year ahead of a move to an early-season date in 2015, whilst the Korean Grand Prix has been removed from the schedule entirely.

Sebastian Vettel will start the season as the defending Drivers' Champion after securing his fourth consecutive title at the 2013 Indian Grand Prix. His team, Red Bull Racing, will start the season as the defending Constructors' Champions, having also won their fourth consecutive championship in India.

Team changes

  • In 2011, former British American Racing team principal Craig Pollock announced the formation of Propulsion Universelle et Recuperation d'Energie (commonly known by its acronym, PURE), and signalled his intentions to enter the sport in 2014 as a customer engine supplier, with the full support of the FIA.[50] However, the engine programme was eventually suspended in July 2012 due to problems regarding funding,[51] and was ultimately unable to secure any clients.[23]
  • Cosworth elected not to build an engine to fit the 2014 generation of regulations.[52] This decision prompted Marussia, the only team using Cosworth engines during the 2013 season, to seek out a new engine supplier.[53] They later joined Ferrari's customer programme with Ferrari providing the team with both engine and powertrain for 2014 and beyond.[26]
  • Scuderia Toro Rosso secured an agreement with Renault for engines in 2014, ending their seven-year arrangement with Ferrari.[38]
  • Williams will part ways with Renault after two seasons, switching to Mercedes power in what the team described as a "long-term deal".[48] The deal came after Renault publicised their intentions to reduce their engine supply to three teams in 2014,[54] before the French manufacturer ultimately settled on supplying four.[23]

Driver changes

Daniel Ricciardo was chosen to take fellow countryman Mark Webber's place at Red Bull Racing after Webber's retirement from Formula One.
