Audi will make a grand entry into Formula One in the 2026 World Championship and this news has made the internet go crazy as it was one of the most awaited entries of all time. It has been revealed that the team will enter the most prestigious championship as a power unit supplier and the power unit will be manufactured at Neuberg, Germany.
The CEO of Formula One, Stefano Domenicali expressed joy at the arrival of the most prestigious group and said that the tournament is growing in strength. He added that he was excited about the same and heaped praise on the German manufacturer saying that it was an iconic brand. The CEO highlighted the importance of the tournament and was happy to express his gratitude to the newly arriving team.
“I am delighted to welcome Audi to Formula 1, an iconic automotive brand, pioneer and technological innovator. This is a major moment for our sport that highlights the huge strength we have as a global platform that continues to grow. It is also a big recognition that our move to sustainably fuelled hybrid engines in 2026 is a future solution for the automotive sector. We are all looking forward to seeing the Audi logo on the grid and will be hearing further details from them on their plans in due course,” Domenicali was quoted as saying.
Fans are already coming up with tweets and are expressing their joy for the entry of the Volkswagen group. Meanwhile, Audi chairperson, Markus Duesmann was on cloud nine and also highlighted the challenges that the brand will face over the course of time.
“Formula 1 is both a global stage for our brand and a highly challenging development laboratory. The combination of high performance and competition is always a driver of innovation and technology transfer in our industry. With the new rules, now is the right time for us to get involved,” he said.
Let’s take a look at some of the tweets that popped up once the news broke out:
