After many rumors, Audi confirmed that it is going to participate in Formula 1 and even showed the design of its car. Audi and the Volkswagen Group have been showing interest in participating in the world's greatest racing competition for years.

However, this won’t happen until 2026, when a new regulation comes into force. At that time, all cars must use synthetic fuel to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the environment. The engines will be hybrid, that is, they combine fuels with electric energy.

F1 is considered a testing laboratory for new technologies that are then used in conventional cars. Audi will start designing its engines to join the great Formula 1 teams: Ferrari, Red Bull, and Mercedes. We just have to wait to find out what its performance will be in the world championship.
