FIA confirms F1 door still open for Porsche

We reported earlier this month that, following the collapse of the Red Bull-Porsche talks, the VW-owned German carmaker only had days to follow Audi into the sport before the FIA’s October 15 deadline. Porsche CFO Lutz Meschke said before the deadline expired: “Formula 1 remains an interesting racing series for us. Indeed, we also clarified before the deadline expired that the FIA may have told Porsche that the deadline may have some flexibility built into it. “At Spa-Francorchamps in August, Audi announced it was joining the FIA Formula 1 World Championship from 2026 as a power unit manufacturer,” he said in a statement after the World Motor Sport Council meeting this week. We also note that Porsche are still in discussions with Formula 1 teams.”.
