The Formula One team Marussia said on Tuesday it was switching engines for the 2014 season to a technical partnership with Ferrari.

The British racing stall is currently driving with a Cosworth engine but Ferrari will supply Marussia with a full powertrain starting with the 2014 season, when F1 moves from eight-cylinder engines to six cylinders.

“The importance of this development to our team cannot be overstated,” said Marussia CEO Andy Webb.

“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.”
