Ferrari propose new fuel efficiency rules
Ferrari are keen to see F1 introduce Gasoline Direct Injection technology should the sport switch to smaller turbocharged engines in 2013.

Engines are one of the hot topics being debated in Formula One's circles at present as the sport looks to nail down the regulations for the 2013 season.

One of the ideas being touted - and which looks likely to be agreed upon - is a switch from the current 2.4l V8s to 670bhp 1.5-litre turbocharged engines.

However, should the sport opt for small engines, Ferrari are keen for it to also introduce explore fuel efficiency technology such as the Gasoline Direct Injection concept.

"If F1 has to develop something helpful for real driving conditions, then the best solution is for an engine that is turbocharged and GDI," Ferrari's CEO Amedeo Felisa told Autocar.

"That is what we would support.

"It is the best solution for driving efficiency and utilization of the engine in a positive way."
