Porsche considering return to F1

1y ago


Porsche is seriously considering returning to Formula 1 as an engine supplier after sending representatives to meetings regarding the regulations for the 2021 F1 engines, says its finance chief.

Lutz Meschke, deputy chairman of Porsche’s executive board and member of the board for finances and IT, met with Ross Brawn and other F1 chiefs at the Italian Grand Prix.

Porsche will end its LMP1 program at the end of 2017, having decided it does not get sufficient return for an investment equivalent to an F1 budget.

It has been encouraged by F1’s moves towards cheaper and simpler technology.

“F1 could be one of the right places,” Meschke told Autosport.

“As you know Formula E is very important for us now, and F1 is always a good topic to think about.

“And I think we are in quite good discussions regarding the new engine.”

Porsche could potentially link up with Red Bull Racing according to many rumors. Considering the above designs by Sean Bull, i reckon the car looks brilliant and should perform as we all expect it too.
