Letter shows Audi likely to enter F1

Audi is edging ever closer to announcing that the Volkswagen-owned German luxury carmaker will enter Formula 1 in 2026. The FIA announced last week that the engine regulations by then will include 100 percent sustainable fuel, greater emphasis on electrical power, a budget cap, and the scrapping of MGU-H technology. It appears to all be enough to satisfy Audi’s requirements for a F1 foray. Indeed, Sport1 reports that a letter by top Audi officials Markus Duesmann and Oliver Hoffman to the FIA president and F1 CEO indicates that the carmaker sees the 2026 rules outline as a fair compromise. “If the plans are approved, Audi will be there,” predicted German correspondent Bianca Garloff.
