Ferrari has reportedly made step of firing up its 2026 Formula 1 power unit for the first time ahead of the rules reset.

Whilst teams are banned from working on car development until 2025 for the massive package of changes, power unit suppliers are hard at work trying to design new engines for thr drastic overhaul.

Come 2026, the MGU-H will disappear with a greater emphasis being placed on electrical power and increased biofuels as F1 aims to become net zero by 2030, with the Scuderia firing up the V6 Internal Combustion Engine, as claimed by Motorsport Italy.

Ferrari is one of a number of potential power unit suppliers building engines for the 2026 rules, including Mercedes High Performance Powertrains, Red Bull Powertrains, Audi, Honda Racing Company and Renault while Ford will supply technical knowledge to RBPT.

General Motors has also indicated it will build its own power unit for 2028, as part of a deal that could see Andretti join the grid, if it can agree commercial terms with F1.

As for 2024, Ferrari's latest F1 challenger will be unveiled on February 13th, eight days before the start of pre-season testing in Bahrain.
