Audi: Not coming to Formula One

Audi R15 TDI

This topic is popping up every few months and once again Audi has confirmed NOT to enter Formula 1. And why should they?

Audi has clearly rejected speculation its name might soon appear above a formula one garage door.
It has been reported for some time that the German carmaker’s parent Volkswagen could be interested in entering the sport as an engine supplier.
VW’s motor racing boss Kris Nissen said a month ago: “Within the group, for sure, (the branding) could be Audi, it could be Porsche and might also be Volkswagen.”
But Audi’s sporting boss Wolfgang Ullrich is not interested, according to the German news agency SID.
“We believe formula one and Audi do not fit, so long as the technology has no relevance to the development of our production cars,” he said.
