The 2014 Formula One season will be the 65th season of the FIA Formula One World Championship. 2014 will be the first year the series uses a revised engine formula, replacing the 2.4 litre V8 engine configuration previously used with a more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged engine formula.[1] The 2014 season will see the addition of the Russian Grand Prix to the series schedule, a race to be held at the Sochi Olympic Park Circuit in Sochi.[2]

Signed teams and drivers

Several drivers, including Fernando Alonso[3], Jenson Button,[4] Timo Glock,[5] Pastor Maldonado[6] and Sebastian Vettel[7] are all under contract to race in 2014. However, their participation depends on their teams agreeing to continue competing in the sport under the terms of a new Concorde Agreement to be introduced at the start of the 2013 season.[8]
