This story is all but new, but evidence is mounting that Volkswagen is eyeing to enter Formula One. Not with a team, but by supplying an engine.
“It is clear that we are looking at formula one,” he is quoted as saying by Sport Bild magazine.
“We are waiting for the FIA’s decision in respect of the use of a world engine for formula one. If there is (a world engine) we will discuss whether to build it for formula one,” added Stuck.
He clarified that VW would only be an engine supplier and not have “our own team like Mercedes”.
The ‘world engine’ concept – with possible deployment across various motor racing categories – has been touted by the FIA.
