Volkswagen is making plans entry into Formula 1

All the Volkswagen fans worldwide could have a reason for celebration as an online report released by ESPN informs that the German carmaker is seriously considering the idea of entering the Formula 1 circuits. Wolfganag Duerheimer, VW head of motor sport, was the person who suggested that a future move would be considered, but according to a press release of the company in March, the prospect of VW entering the F1 was not likely to happen. Wolfganag added that he could imagine involvement in Formula One in 2018 as the company would be at the forefront of the industry and they could provide enough brands that were able to do that. Skoda, Seat, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bugatti and Audi are brands included in the Volkswagen Group and considering Audi's racing pedigree for more than a decade, it might be considered the best option. But Porsche is also proud to be famous in motor sports racing with a history that goes back to Ferdinand Porsche, the man who was the founder of the VW Group and designed the grand prix race cars. Porsche has won 25 races in the 1980s with the McLaren team. The Porsche brand appeared again in the F1 championships in the 1960, 1980s and 90s as an engine supplier.
