Rumour Mill: Porsche And Red Bull Teaming Up For F1

Despite a pullback from Motorsports, the VW Group are looking to get back in action which could lead to a Porsche-Red Bull F1 team


  • The rumour is that Volkswagen might enter F1.

  • Honda, currently partnered with Red Bull, is pulling out of F1 after this season.


Red Bull and Honda’s partnership is ending after the 2021 F1 racing season. While Honda might be exiting the sport, Red Bull will carry on with force as they will take over Honda’s engine development program. And this may only be the beginning of Red Bull’s immediate future plans.

Volkswagen, as a Group, has been omnipresent in many motorsport disciplines for decades. Although Audi’s scaled back its investments, Porsche might be in the market to enter F1. When asked about participating in F1 and F1 engine rules, according to ars technica, Porsche’s CEO responded with: “the regulations need to change so that Porsche can broadly identify with the new environment-friendly priorities.”

Red Bull’s team principal, Christian Horner, said: “In terms of what will the engine be badged as, at this point in time, [it] is clearly focused to be a Red Bull engine,” Horner said. “That is a commitment and that is a design group that we’re bringing together to focus on the new regulations. We have effectively a soft landing thanks to the IP usage that we have a principle agreement with Honda, so it’s exciting times. And I think it puts Red Bull in a truly unique situation to have everything housed on one campus under one roof and to really make use of those synergies. And particularly in a cost-capped world with cost caps potentially coming into powertrains as well, it makes it achievable for companies such as our own.”
