New entrants set to race into F1

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem is confident “new entrants” will enter Formula 1 after the 2026 engine rules come into force. Horner explains that Andretti becoming the eleventh team simply means “diluting” the existing income for the other teams. “Why should they give up 5, 10, 15 million for the good of a new team?” “This could create a third payment column for a client team and this would not divide the manufacturers,” said Horner. As for the engine rules, one of the most contentious points has been how a new entrant like Porsche – likely to become Red Bull’s works partner – is treated. “If the new rules come in for 2026, we will be the only team next to Ferrari that can build everything from one location,” he said.
