Honeywell To Provide Turbos To Scuderia Ferrari In Formula 1

ROLLE, Switzerland, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Turbo Technologies will boost the engines of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 car in 2014. Formula 1 is adopting a new rules package that requires cars to be turbocharged marking a new technical era for the pinnacle of global motorsport racing.

Honeywell to Provide Turbos to Scuderia Ferrari in Formula 1

Honeywell  will support the Scuderia Ferrari team with the unique technical challenge of moving to an all-new turbocharged 1.6L V6 engine from a 2.4L naturally-aspirated V8 configuration used from 2006 through 2013. This downsized 1.6L engine will produce the equivalent power of a production Honeywell turbocharged 16L commercial vehicle engine. The new downsized turbo engines are also designed with the latest in energy recovery technology to support other systems in the race car.

"To win in Formula 1, our powertrain system must have no weak links," said Luca Marmorini, Scuderia Ferrari Engine and Electronics Director. "To ensure that, we choose partners with impeccable reputations and experience in delivering innovative, high quality products and services.  Honeywell's turbochargers helped us find the downsizing solutions we needed to meet the new rules without compromising the performance."

As Formula 1 adopts global passenger car trends for downsizing and turbocharging to improve fuel economy and emissions without sacrificing driving performance, its 2014 engine formula represents an exciting look at specific technologies – including in the area of heat energy recovery -- which could shape more advanced passenger vehicles in the years to come.     

"We are very excited to be collaborating with the most successful team in the history of Formula 1 on what is an extremely challenging new rules package which brings turbocharging to the forefront of this motor racing series once again," said Honeywell Vice President of Advanced Technologies and Motorsport Gavin Donkin. "Honeywell has a 60-year legacy of developing turbocharger technology leveraging our jet engines business within Honeywell. It continues to be a tangible point of differentiation for Honeywell Turbo to the point where we've joked with Scuderia Ferrari that given the sophistication of the turbos we are providing, that many of us consider them to be our lowest altitude aerospace customer."

Honeywell continues to be a leader in global turbo technology averaging 100 new turbo launches a year for global passenger and commercial vehicle applications in partnership with nearly every major global auto maker. In addition, Honeywell is supporting the industry with hundreds of applications already in its development pipeline.
