Cosworth is for sale

The Telegraph is reporting that Cosworth have made the decision to put the company up for sale. The company currently supply engines to Marussia and HRT and a question mark has hung over the company's future in the sport since the announcement of the 2014 engine changes was made which would require Cosworth, a private engineering company, to invest a significant amount of money into it's build and testing, not to mind R&D if it were to remain on as an engine supplier.

The news is not insignificant as, were new owners to pull out of F1, the engine options for all teams going forward would be limited to Mercedes, Renault, and Ferrari.

While there have been stirrings and rumours around regarding Honda's return to the sport and interest from Audi, no commitments have been forthcoming to date.
