It was recently suggested that Audi team up with McLaren, while Porsche will team up with Red Bull Racing. A confirmation is still pending, but according to Reuters‘ sources, the deadline for the decision is in March.
It has been known for some time that the Volkswagen Group is interested in Formula 1. From 2026, new rules for engine manufacturers should make it easier for new suppliers to enter the sport.
The subject will be discussed at a meeting of the supervisory board at the end of February, but the decision will only follow later. The site’s source declined to give a name.
The deadline is set for the end of March, so Audi still has 2.5 months to make a decision. The site’s source confirmed that the partnership is already on the table, but not finalized yet. Volkswagen declined to comment.
