Porsche is a German car brand and part of the Volkswagen Group. In the first quarter of 2022, the organisation announced that it wanted to enter Formula 1 from 2026. It means that Porsche will be part of the motorsport class for the first time in history, where it hopes to score high.
Collaboration with Red Bull
Immediately after the news, it became clear that Porsche wanted to bet high immediately. The brand was in talks with Red Bull Racing to close a deal. The Austrian racing stable drove a Honda engine for a number of seasons and even managed to win the drivers' world title, but after the collaboration ended, Red Bull is looking for new knowledge. By collaborating with Porsche, it would take another step in improving the racing stable.
However, Porsche does not focus exclusively on Red Bull, because other teams would also be high on the list to enter into discussions. However, the car company still has a while to go, as the entry will not take place until 2026. Then there are some new engine regulations in force, including a budget cap for the engines. It means that suppliers no longer have to spend unlimited amounts.
