Audi enters Formula 1

From 2026, Audi will compete in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship with a specially developed power unit.  The project will be based at Audi Sport’s facility in Neuburg near Ingolstadt.  This is the first time in more than a decade that a Formula 1 powertrain will be built in Germany.

Audi announced its entry during a press conference last week at the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.

“Motorsport is an integral part of Audi’s DNA,” says Markus Duesmann, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG.  “Formula 1 is both a global stage for our brand and a highly challenging development laboratory.  The combination of high performance and competition is always a driver of innovation and technology transfer in our industry.  With the new rules, now is the right time for us to get involved.  After all, Formula 1 and Audi both pursue clear sustainability goals.”
