Another Porsche official has confirmed the consideration of joining Formula One again by saying that they “can afford” their own team. Bring it on!
And now Wolfgang Durheimer, Porsche’s research and development director, has revealed that the marque is not simply considering becoming an engine supplier as it was in 1991.
“If Porsche was to go to formula one, then it would only be with its own team, because you need complete control over all the competition-related factors, including the car and its technology,” Durheimer is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.
“Porsche is a very profitable company, we can afford that,” he added.
