Fans visiting the Formula 1 Exhibition, which officially opens tomorrow in Madrid (hypeeeeee!), can get up close and personal with a genuine Ferrari F1 engine. The team are known for their secrecy regarding design and technology, so this opportunity – to see the 2021 car’s power unit – is quite a big deal!
The 065/6 2021 hybrid power unit, which will be located in the Exhibition’s ‘Revolution by Design’ room, features a turbocharged 1.6-litre V6 internal combustion engine, built especially for the show.
It really does offer a unique opportunity for F1 fans to see the inner workings of a power unit – which also boasts two electrical motors and an Energy Store Pack.
Ferrari team principal Fred Vasseur said: “We are thrilled to join forces with the Formula 1 Exhibition to showcase our 2021 power unit.
“The engine has forever been at the heart of Ferrari, and the unprecedented amount of time spent developing and fine-tuning it is testament to just how fundamental it is to the team’s success.”
The F1 Exhibition has been several years in the making, and combines audio-visual design with rare film and imagery as well as some incredibly displayed pieces, such as Romain Grosjean’s Haas chassis from his fiery Bahrain crash in 2020.
