Formula 1 is set to become even more intense.
According to a Reuters report, Audi and Porsche, two premium brands under the Volkswagen division (VW Group), are joining Formula 1.

Porsche aims for a partnership with Red Bull
During an event in Wolfsburg, the discussions continued over the board of directors for the two premium brands, but they had resulted in internal divisions, according to a report.
In a Formula 1 environment of ultimate speed and precision, two brands, which are the most significant sources of income, proved fit to earn additional cash for Wolfsburg. "You just run out of arguments," said he, pulling the final rug out from the opposition''s position.

This comes after several months'''' speculation that the two automobile companies were working on partnerships to enter the most advanced category of international motor racing which has gone forward for much of the past ten years. Notably, VW also owns Mercedes.
According to Reuters, steps to prepare Porsche for its Formula 1 participation were a little more advanced than those of Audi. Audi is expected to pay $556.3 million for McLaren, the United Kingdom''s luxury sports car manufacturer, to enter. However, Porsche is aiming for a long-term partnership with Red Bull, which might take years.
Beyond the economic viability of the two brands'' stunning entry into Formula 1, the possibility for excellent advertising exposure erupted a persuasive factor in the decision. Diess added that Porsche''s entry would reduce other racing activities and put new emphasis on the Formula 1 circuit.
Formula 1 will remain "the world''s largest motorsport spectacle."
According to an Ars Technica report, a fresh powertrain of unintelligent complexity that leaves electrical harvesting has hit the scene. It employs a turbocharger that employs a more powerful regenerative braking. This innovation was reportedly a prerequisite for VW Group entering Formula 1.
"You can''t get into Formula 1 unless a technology window opens," Diess said in a YouTube video interview. "You need a new engine development and to make the new engine you need three or four years. We assume that in ''26, ''28, it will still be the world''s largest motorsport event, even more than today."
"Most in China, more in the United States than today," said Diess. Beyond Red Bull, we still don''t know how Porsche and Audi will look when they compete. We also don''t know whether Porsche and Audi will use their own F1 powertrains or instead work under different namesplates. However, when VW Group''s manufacturers speed down the circuit, the future of racing will become even more intense than ever.
