Ferrari will supply a full powertrain under the new regulations for 2014 including a V6 turbo engine, Energy Recovery System and transmission.
“The importance of this development to our team cannot be overstated,” said CEO Andy Webb.
Marussia is still without a commercial deal with Formula One Management. Webb said the new deal shows they are serious about competing in F1:
“Not only will we benefit from a customer supply from the most successful engine manufacturer in Formula One?óÔé¼Ôäós 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.”
Marussia has used Cosworth power since entering Formula One in 2010 as Virgin.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Cosworth, with whom we have partnered since our debut season in 2010,” added Webb.
“We have shared an important part of our team?óÔé¼Ôäós journey together and Cosworth have been an integral part of our clear progression. We will continue to work together during the latter half of the season to ensure we all achieve our combined objectives before Cosworth leave the sport.?óÔé¼?Ø
