    Merc with Toto an Co. are a bunch of crooks....i don't trust them as far as i can throw them....they play the safety bull crap so behind the scenes they will build somthing that will benefit them teh most and screw ferrari and red bull that have worked so hard to come up with some clever and spot ON design
    Glad 2021 is over, another winless season....but at least we beat McLaren.....Hopefully we'll be up there fighting for wins in 2022.

    agreed. It's probably a money issue. Hope both parties figure something out. Spa needs to be on the F1 calender no matter what.

    Let's see what happens. Action speaks louder than words. I hope he goes thru with it.

    [Motorsport-Total.com]

    It has been no secret for months that Porsche will enter F1 in 2026 as a partner "on an equal footing" with Red Bull.

    But now there is the first highly official proof that the project is basically already done and the official press release is only a formal act.

    In Morocco among other places official information was published this week about the approval of an application that Porsche AG and Red Bull GmbH have submitted jointly & which envisages the acquisition of 50% of the shares in the Red Bull F1 program by Porsche.

    You have to know: Porsche and Red Bull had to report their joint project to the antitrust authorities, including in around 20 countries outside the European Union.

    The legislation in Morocco, for example, provides that such applications are subject to a publication obligation after approval.


    Press release was planned for Red Bull home race. In principle, that would not have been a problem for Porsche and Red Bull, after all, the joint project should have been officially communicated at the Austrian Grand Prix three weeks ago.

    But the press release had to be postponed again because the FIA WMSC did not approve the engine regulations from 2026 on June 29 as announced and finalized engine regulations are a basic requirement for Porsche to officially communicate its entry into F1.

    This confirms what has been one of the worst kept secrets in F1 for months: Porsche will not only enter F1 as a supplier of the powertrain, but also as a 50% partner of Red Bull.

    This has the advantage that large parts of the power unit can be developed and built under one roof at Red Bull Powertrains in Milton Keynes.

    The sister team AlphaTauri will in all probability also start with Porsche power - anything else would be illogical due to the desired synergies between Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri - but will remain 100 percent in the hands of Red Bull GmbH.



    Audi: Still in negotiations with Sauber The second brand in the Volkswagen Group, whose entry into Formula 1 has already been approved by all the necessary bodies, Audi, is not as far along with its project as Porsche.

    According to information from 'http://Motorsport-Total.com', the Ingolstadt-based company is still negotiating with Sauber owner Finn Rausing about acquiring 75 percent of the team's shares.

    As early as April 7, 2022, the Supervisory Board of the Volkswagen Group gave the go-ahead for Porsche and Audi to enter Formula 1 and approved the corresponding budgets, after all the bodies of the two brands had previously given their approval.

    Too early to tell...but both teams have the personnel and the characteristic of winning in their respective motorsport.

    Audi looks to acquire Sauber-Alfa Romeo......so that's another "German" team.

    it would be bad to see audi instead of Alfa Romeo

    I dislike german car brands, they produce cars for men who are 55 years old-married having children.

    I like rather original brands like ferrari, alpine, maybe lamborghini, bugatti etc

    german automobiles are so boring, as hell. I dont want f1 to lose Alfa Romeo

    Look up ANY Black Series model from Mercedes........ANY OF THEM from any year. They're quite potent in horsepower and torque and not for the meek or "55 years old-married having childeren." Those models cater to the younger more affluent crowd.

    The NEW Porsche 992 Turbo S and GT3 RS and GT3 RS MR are no slouches either.

    Red Bull has run its first 2026 F1 engine on the dyno

    Red Bull Racing and Dr Helmut Marko have not yet been able to comment on yesterday's leak to the media, following the early publication of a document from Morocco's Competition Council revealing that there is indeed an upcoming Formula 1 joint venture project between Red Bull and Porsche .

    The Austrian consultant claims in any case that Red Bull's preparations for the future, involving its own subsidiary Red Bull Powertrains in Milton-Keynes, are going according to plan.

    “The first engine, a single-cylinder, is already running on the test bench,” he announces.

    "It's an incredible achievement from the people at our engine plant in England. This project is Christian Horner's baby."

    Will Helmut Marko still be in F1 to follow and ensure what will happen in 2026, with Porsche or not?

    "I'm still passionate and feel younger than I actually am. We're well positioned for the future."


    "With Max Verstappen we have the fastest driver under contract until 2028. Our team stands for continuity - the key figures have been with us for a long time."

    "For me, I'm planning until 2025. That's how long we'll be racing with the current regulations. After that, we'll see."

    Didn't really know where to post my thoughts on this, but I watched the Enzo Ferrari documentary "Race to Immortality" on Sky for the first time this week for the first time and he really doesn't come off well. He seemed to be a real ******** quite frankly... However he was a genius and like most geniuses, they can be

    Agree with you, not sure I'd have wanted to be a driver under his 'do or die' mantra, as many did. But he created a mythical and enduring legacy, and I'm glad he did.

    In Enzo's time it was "do or die". It's harsh, but it's true. Drivers were either brave enough to be willing to go to the edge enough for speed, or they weren't, and had no place in a top car. Same went for the engineers.

    Ferrari didn't win almost 1/3 of the WDC and WCC in F1's first 30 years, and 9 24 Hours of Le Mans by being nice and pleasant. Racing was no playground. You played for keeps.

    I always thought he would at some point get Senna to drive Ferrari.

    Just read an article where Binotto said that Ferrari does not have strategy issues. That the strategy team is great and they are doing good work and while Monaco, Silverstone and Paul Ricard were unfortunate (he didn't mention Hungaroring at all), the decisions were right at the time... WHAT?! This guy is literally dead in the brain! We will never win with this cauliflower retard in charge.

    He should be responsible for development of the car and delegate to someone else to manage the race day/pitwall aspects.

    You do not lose a talent like Binotto, that is the exact definition of mismanagement. The man is brilliant... you keep him happy and find ways to support him. He was open to bringing Todt back, why did Elkann choose not to do this? I think there is a lot of oversimplification going on here...
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...

    Definitely. That is the point most of us are making here, including myself. He must not be lost.

    But he has to fix the strategy system/department.

    Ferrari's two great drivers definitely need to let the pit wall and Binotto know what they think at the moment during the races. when it comes to a decision and be strong as to what to do. Binotto needs all the help he can get!
