Formula 1 instability stopping Volkswagen foray – boss

Volkswagen has renewed its objection to approving a Formula one project.

Recently, Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne said he believes VW brand Audi was “quite ready” to enter the sport soon.

“Then came the Volkswagen (emissions) chaos,” he said.

But VW’s motor sport chief Wolfgang Durheimer has now told Autocar that it is actually the regulations chaos within formula one that is preventing a foray.

“The situation is not predictable enough to make the kind of investment required,” he said.

“On the regulations front, there are a lot of rumours around the engine side and the supporting technology side.

“On the ownership side, there are also big questions the sport must answer,” Durheimer added. “In F1, it seems the owners will not be there forever and that creates some instability.”
