Porsche seems to have taken the first step towards Formula 1 with the partnership with Red Bull. According to the reporting obligation of the relevant authorities in Morocco, the German manufacturer will take more than 50 percent of Red Bull Racing.
Know this Motorsport.com to report. There is still no official press release, because this had to be postponed by both parties. This is due to the lack of clarity on the engine regulations that will come into force from 2026. According to Motorsport.com it is clear from the official statement from Morocco that Porsche will take more than 50 percent of Red Bull Racing. This is according to requests from Porsche AG and Red Bull GmbH. It is the first step and a sign towards cooperation between both sides.
The rumors have been around since Porsche made it clear that it wanted to enter Formula 1. Red Bull was the most logical choice, considering all the other suppliers currently active in Formula 1. Especially since Porsche had no intention of forming its own team. With this acquisition, the first big step seems to have been taken. So from 2026, if the information is correct, Porsche will return to Formula 1 and own half of the Red Bull Championship.
There are still many unknowns about Audi. It seems that Audi wants to enter Formula 1 with its team, like Andretti. For Audi, this only seems to be an option from 2026, but the question is how and what for now. Like Red Bull and Porsche, Audi is probably also waiting for the finalization of the engine regulations for 2026. Moreover, with Red Bull Racing, a logical cooperation partner is most likely to drop out.
