Marussia is expected to announce a 2014 engine deal with Ferrari at the 2013 Canadian Grand Prix in June. June 9.

The team was deciding between the Ferrari and Mercedes because current engine supplier Cosworth is not building a turbo V6 for 2014..

Marussia chief executive Andy Webb said: "It is clear that the price will be an important factor, because the cost will be significantly higher than the current engines."


It is believed that, of the three engine manufacturers in F1 next year, Renault's V6 will be the most expensive package, while Ferrari is the cheapest.

It is believed 2013 Marussia driver Jules Bianchi's connections with Ferrari also worked in favour of a deal with the Maranello outfit.

Marussia technical boss Pat Symonds said: "Ferrari genuinely wants more teams. I think they wanted another team anyway and the contact through Jules has done nothing but help."
