On Friday morning, Audi announced that it will be seen in Formula 1 from 2026. According to Auto Motor und Sport the next announcement won't have to be long in coming, because according to the German medium, Porsche is also eager to present its plans.

Formula 1 will have a new engine supplier before the first race after the announcement of the new engine regulations in 2026. Audi is entering Formula 1 from 2026 and is keen to take over an existing team. Now that Alfa Romeo has announced that they will stop as title sponsor and partner of Sauber after 2023, a takeover of Sauber seems the most logical step for Audi.
