Porsche and its parent company the Volkswagen Group are mulling to enter the Formula 1. However, any substantial move on their part will depend on the direction of the sport’s next engine regulations which are slated to be introduced in 2025. In a recent interview with a leading media house, Porsche Motorsport vice-president Fritz Enzinger said that it would help their cause if the new regulations have consider aspects of sustainability like the implementation of e-fuels.
“Should these aspects be confirmed, we will evaluate them in detail within the VW Group and discuss further steps,” Enzinger was quoted as saying in a BBC report.
Volkswagen Group will commit either with Porsche or Audi brands: Sources
F1 had earlier confirmed its commitment to making e-fuels a vital part of the sport from 2025 and it would be interesting to see whether Porsche then enters the sport. Senior F1 officials believe Porsche has been pretty much involved in the discussion around the new engine rules.
“Porsche and Volkswagen AG are observing the constantly changing regulations in all relevant racing series around the world. This is also the case with regard to the emerging new engine and drivetrain regulation for Formula 1 from 2025,” Enzinger added.
Meanwhile, reports also suggest that if Volkswagen Group commit to entering F1, it would be either be with Porsche or Audi brands. The sources close to the group have confirmed the same.
