Bottas Will Remain With Sauber Till The Advent Of Audi F1

Bottas Will Remain With Sauber Till The Advent Of Audi F1

November 7, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Audi formally announced its intention to team up with Sauber as its power unit manufacturer in 2026, when a new engine formula will go into effect, during the Belgian Grand Prix in August.

As Audi becomes a shareholder in the Swiss team, it is anticipated that its engagement would progressively increase once Alfa Romeo’s sponsorship agreement with the Hinwil team expires at the end of 2023.

Driving for an actual works team once more appeals to current Alfa Romeo driver Bottas, who joined the privateer after five years with Mercedes.

When asked in Mexico if he intended to remain with Sauber when Audi joined the team in 2026, Bottas responded: “why not I’m hoping to go because I’m 33 years old.” According to Bottas, the team’s motivation will be maintained in the upcoming seasons by Audi’s participation.

“Yes, I would say, as I believe it to be quite significant in the overall scheme of things. Sauber has a lot of potential with Audi.

“They certainly want to be successful in the future. They desire to do well and come out as earnest.

“Therefore, I believe that participating in that initiative would be quite intriguing for any driver on the grid, especially for me since I am currently a member of Sauber. I really believe that it is feasible.”

Bottas said Alfa Romeo requires “a lot of effort” to be competitive, but he believes more support from Audi before the team’s official 2026 entrance would enable it to catch up to the leaders.

“There is undoubtedly more work to be done. This is a fact. However, given that the necessary facilities are nearby, “The Finn made a mention.

“Some buildings and equipment are more comparable to championship-winning teams. And the team still has fewer members than, at the very least, what I observed last year.

But I don’t see why it couldn’t be done with the help of a company like Audi.

“I believe [the timetable] hinges on how much Audi will help this team before they formally enter as a manufacturer,” the author said.

Obviously, nothing will change in the upcoming year. Alfa Romeo is still our partner. Naturally, we also aspire to have a better vehicle next year than we had this one.

But beyond then, I believe it depends on the level of support after 2024.

If [Audi] are eager to help, if they’re genuinely making a big effort to help, and if the power unit is excellent for 2026, which is now hard to forecast, then why not.

Audi Will Debut In Formula 1 Year 2026

Audi Will Debut In Formula 1 Year 2026

August 26, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


The German manufacturer has long been associated with a transfer to Formula One and has sometimes expressed interest in talks of technical regulations, but it has never committed to an entry or program.

That has altered as a result of the engine regulation modifications that will take effect in 2026 and the increase in F1’s worldwide appeal.

Since F1 courted the Volkswagen Group for some months, the move by Audi has been anticipated.

F1 programmers from both Audi and sister brand Porsche have been in the works since late last year, and Herbert Diess, the departing CEO of the VW Group, effectively confirmed them in May.

Audi intended to construct its own engine and field its own squad, while Porsche was said to be working with Red Bull. This has been known for a number of months.
However, both companies had previously stated that neither project would receive the official go-ahead until the 2026 engine regulations were established, which took place earlier in August.

While cost-cutting measures are put in place, the current manufacturers have decided to remove the complicated MGU-H from the V6 turbo-hybrids.



New manufacturers, like Audi, will initially be given more dyno time and expenditure allowances.

On Friday morning, Audi posted a teaser image, promising that “more rings are coming” with a cropped image of an F1 car.

It’s unknown if an engine programme will be revealed separately or together with the team’s plans being confirmed.

Audi is anticipated to have acquired or will acquire a majority investment in Sauber, with minority ownership remaining with existing owner Finn Rausing.

With this, Audi will officially take over management of the Alfa Romeo-sponsored team, which will continue to use Ferrari engines until 2026, when it will formally become the first fully Audi-powered entry.
