FIA confirms turbos in 2013 regulations
Following a Barcelona meeting for the FIA World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) on Friday, Formula 1’s governing body has officially confirmed numerous technical regulations for 2013 onwards. These include turbocharged, four-cylinder, 1.6-litre engines limited to 12,000 revolutions per minute.

2013 Technical Regulations approved by the FIA are as follows:

- Power units will be four cylinders, 1.6 liter with high pressure gasoline injection up to 500 bar with a maximum of 12,000 rpm, with extensive energy management and energy recovery systems (now known as ERS), reflecting the decision taken by the WMSC in December 2010

- The aerodynamic regulations have been based on 2011 rules, with modifications in order to improve the aerodynamic efficiency: together with the power train rules, this will enable a 35% reduction in fuel consumption

- The height of the tip of the nose will be limited to ensure better compatibility in a T-bone style accident

- A limitation on transmissions (gear ratios, number of gearboxes) in order to decrease costs

- The overall weight of the car must be no less than 660kg
