On the 28th of June, the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) voted to make the next generation of F1 engines 1600cc direct injection V6 turbos, with a controlled fuel flow. This will come into effect for the 2014 season. They will be higher revving (increased from 12,000rpm to 15,000rpm), but they will have the same fuel efficiency requirements placed upon them. They will also still incorporate energy recovery systems, such as KERS.
