MARANELLO, Italy - Marussia has led the way for a nearly 14kW power boost for struggling engine supplier Ferrari, says Italy's Autosprint magazine.

The mag says that at the upcoming "power circuits" - Belgium (August 24) and Italy (September 7) - Ferrari might have to thank engine customer Marussia for its extra speed.

Reportedly, the clever solution derives more power from Ferrari's turbo V6.

MAGIC PAINT = MORE KW?

Formula 1 correspondent Alberto Antonini refers to it as "a magic paint" that applies a shield to deliver more heat to the turbine.

Autosprint said Ferrari engineers wanted the innovation to be tested on the power units run by its F1 customer, back-marker Marussia.

It's believed that, amid the tight engine development "freeze", the International Automobile Federation will green-light the mid-season change on the grounds of reliability.
