    Simple answer is no. Lambo is focused on GT3-4 cars at moment, as thats more for their marketing and budgets. There is also talk of GTE car being built. But until the new GT regs get ironed out, there is alot of talk of GT convergence, still. Between GTE and GT3 cars. Lambo is owned by Audi, F1 isnt really on either of their radars.

    If Audi decides to venture in F1, they will choose Audi as the brand not Lambo. Audi is the most powerful brand of that corporation.

    ...and/or Porsche. Lamborghini has historically played the joker role?

    Porsche is owned by VW. Audi can benefit more from F1 marketing than Lambo imo. They don't play the joker role but a different role nevertheless :D

    VW and Audi left both WRC and WEC for budgetary reasons, and you're expecting me to believe VAG will enter the most expensive motorsport of them all? That's a big no-no

    Under the current formula....yes its a no.....but after the 2020 concorde agreement...things will change plus new owners.....VAG just might consider it and post under A name.

    Will they? They never expressed real interest in F1 before (for me, those rumours of Audi powering Red Bull from 3 years ago were just that: rumours)

    We will see after the 2020 Concorde agreement.....Ford has even considered it as a possibility after 2020....maybe as an engine supplier ala Cosworth.

    That's 3 years away, and will depend on a lot of things. Let's wait and see
