PORSCHE IN ADVANCED TALKS WITH RED BULL FOR F1 ENTRY

Red Bull-Porsche partnership could happen in a near future as their talk is in advance for 2026 season.

In a meantime, McLaren also is in talks of selling their team to Audi, but still talks are ongoing, according to German Media.

On the other hand, Volkswagen is also interested in joining this project, as they are leading on the best electric car at the moment.

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, who ran the original report, say “Audi and Porsche are not only to be mere engine suppliers, but are to compete with their own racing teams”.

German news channel n-tv reporting that “negotiations with McLaren and Red Bull are at an advanced stage.

“The negotiations are about a purchase offer for McLaren by Audi and a close co-operation between Porsche and Red Bull.”

“Audi and Porsche are said to want to develop the Formula 1 powertrain together, but to offer it to other Formula 1 teams under their own names. However, the VW supervisory board still has to approve the plans.

“VW Group boss Herbert Diess, however, has long been a supporter of an F1 entry”.
