Mercedes opens door for Porsche to enter F1

Mercedes is willing to make concessions in order to open the door for Porsche to enter Formula 1 in 2026. When asked by Bild newspaper how much regulatory advantage Mercedes is willing to give up in order to open the door for fellow German competitor Porsche, Daimler CEO Ola Kallenius gave a surprising answer. “Normally I would say ‘I have an advantage, so I want to keep the advantage’. But in this case you have to think bigger,” he said. “Should a manufacturer like Porsche want to enter Formula 1 under these conditions, we would very much welcome that in the interests of the sport,” Kallenius added.
