F1 goes turbo

As of 2013 F1 will run 4 cylinder 1.6 turbo engines! Its mainly aimed at efficiency as they'll run 50% more efficiently than the current 2.4 V8s. Revs will be limited to around 10,000rpm not 18,000 too. Not sure how they'll manage it but they'll be getting the same 750 BHP from the little things and the power of KERS will be increased too.

Sounds good to me and I'll be interested to see how they manage to get the power output!
