F1 2014 – Allison: reliability is fundamental

Formula One News » F1 2014 – Allison: reliability is fundamental

James Allison, who re-joined Ferrari last year from Lotus for the second time, has revealed that “reliability is going to be absolutely fundamental” is Ferrari are to win the 2014 Formula 1 championship.

“2014 sees us, for the first time in many years, have free development of an engine from a clean sheet of paper,” says Allison, “and for sure that will bring a level of variation of power from the various engine manufacturers. That makes the engine a much more competitive factor in 2014 that it has been in recent years.”

“The rules on aerodynamics are also very new. The rate of development we have aerodynamically through the season will be very steep and the importance of aerodynamics to the championship is going to be at least as important as the differences in power levels between the various engine manufacturers.”

“I would say that this year reliability is going to be absolutely fundamental.”
