Audi is no longer ruling out a future in Formula 1. In past years, the VW brand has given a clearer ‘No’ to speculation it might launch a foray. But recently, Lamborghini chief Stefano Domenicali has been representing Volkswagen and Audi at F1 meetings about the post-2020 engine regulations.
However, Audi motor sport chief Dieter Gass told Kolner Express newspaper that the VW diesel scandal complicates the situation: “This is probably not the right moment,” he admitted.
Nonetheless, Audi remains interested in the 2021 engine talks: “All current and potential manufacturers were invited by the FIA and it is good that we are there,” said Gass.
