How many times have we seen the headline VW to join F1? The worlds largest car maker are again in the headlines with F1 a consideration being taken seriously.
In 2014/15, Stefano Dominicali led a feasibility study for the group last time they were looking to break into F1. Back then, most likely as an engine supplier only.
Now Liberty are in the captains chair and a certain little man from Norfolk (Mr Bernie Ecclestone) put to pasture (we think), the huge car giant are again looking at F1. If they were to join the paddock, it’ll almost certainly be with one of their sub brands such as Bugatti or Bentley.
Yes the title of the article is rather fanciful BUT, the romance of having either Bentley or Bugatti race in F1 would surely make any fan tremble with excitement.
The whole reason for the buzz is president and CEO of Bugatti and Bentley Wolfgang Dürheimer’s comments made today.
“From my point of view, the whole topic is currently being mixed up again. It is an absolute new beginning to recognize,” comments Wolfgang Dürheimer to the German media.
“If such a new start is to be recognised, then one must, of course, also put the previous decisions to the test and re-evaluate it,”
