McLaren set to sign EUR 650m Audi F1 deal

McLaren’s Formula 1 team is tipped to sign an incredible EUR 650 million deal with Audi. Following reports the Volkwagen-owned brand was in talks for a EUR 500m technical and engine tie-up with the Woking based team, Germany’s Automobilwoche claims the offer has now swelled by a further EUR 150m. Before McLaren potentially teams up with Audi from 2026, however, the orange-coloured team is notably struggling with its all-new 2022 car. “We just don’t have enough performance,” team boss Andreas Seidl told “There is no specific origin – the car works and the base is good. Seidl admitted that McLaren is currently “conducting an important analysis of the whole aerodynamic concept”.
