Mercedes has today revealed in a video on YouTube the sound of next season’s V6 turbocharged engine which will be introduced as part of the new regulations for 2014.

The recording was taken from a development engine, accompanying a lap of the legendary Monza circuit which will pose the greatest challenge to the new power units.

The downsize in engines (from V8 to V6) is part of the sport’s bid to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
