Mercedes have released a video of computer simulated lap around the Monza circuit, complete with 2014-regulated engine noise - giving fans a sneak preview of how the 2014 Formula One regulation engines may sound.
It is the first time a team has released such a video in the lead up to the change which will see the current 2.4 litre V8 engines downsized to 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged powerhouses.
The Kinetic Energy Recovery System used by all teams in 2013 will be replaced by an Energy Recovery System for 2014.
ERS will provide approximately 160 brake horsepower and will be available to each driver for 33.33 seconds per lap.
Despite the smaller engine displacement and size for 2014 and beyond the V6 engines are expected to provide up to 640bhp and be no less powerful than the current V8s, though they will be limited to 15,000 revolutions per minute.
