Reports from Germany suggest Volkswagen could enter F1 with Audi and Porsche as constructors, rather than just engine suppliers.
Decision time is looming for VW to decide if they are coming into F1, according to Stefano Domenicali.
Williams boss Jost Capito has again said his team would be interested in talking to Volkswagen if they enter F1 as an engine supplier in 2026.
The FIA has set out the key pillars for the new 2026 Formula 1 engines, reportedly clearing the way for the Volkswagen Group to join.
Williams would be open to discussions with VW should they decide to join Formula 1 in future.
Volkswagen would be more likely to target Formula 1 entry as a constructor through a ‘partner’ team, according to Jost Capito.
The Volkswagen Group could make the call as early as next month as to whether either Audi or Porsche, or both, could enter Formula 1.
