Porsche Confirms F1 Entry for 2026

VW CEO confirms Audi, Porsche F1 entries for 2026

Date published: May 2 2022 - Jon Wilde


Volkswagen’s chief executive, Herbert Diess, has confirmed Audi and Porsche will enter Formula 1 in 2026.

Diess indicated Porsche’s plans were a little more certain at this early stage – which may well mean them linking up with Red Bull for an engine programme.

Since last summer when they both became involved in talks over F1’s next generation of engines from 2026, Audi and Porsche, who are both part of the Volkswagen group, have been increasingly linked with joining the grid.

Unofficial confirmation occurred in early April, as reported by Reuters, who are now attributing the official word to chief executive Diess in a YouTube video.

There were not, however, any specific details from the 63-year-old Munich-born Austrian national, although Reuters reported that Porsche “intends to establish a long-term partnership with Red Bull starting in several years’ time”, which will essentially mean 2026.

Reuters are also sticking to their story from March that Audi have put a bid of 500 million euros (£418million) on the table for the McLaren team which, if accepted, would enable them to enter Formula 1 as a constructor rather than simply as an engine manufacturer.
