Volkswagen interested in entering Formula One under Audi or Porsche name

Toyota may have bid ’sayonara!’ to Formula One, but another auto conglomerate is voicing its interest in joining the racing series sometime down the road, possibly as early as 2013.

It’s already been reported that Volkswagen has made it known of its interest in joining Formula One as an engine supplier under the auspices of the racing series using VW’s ’world engine’ by 2013. Now it looks like the German auto giant is interested in more than just supplying engines; they’re actually thinking of fielding their own team to compete in the so-called ’pinnacle of motorsport’.

According to Volkswagen’s motor racing chief, Kris Nissen, should the company enter the world of Formula One, it could possibly be under the name of one of their brands. "Within the group, for sure, it could be Audi , it could be Porsche and might also be Volkswagen," he said.

For the sake of everyone, let’s hope that if VW does decide to enter Formula One, they’d fare better than some of the recent automakers to try their luck in the sport only to fizzle out when it came time to the actual race. Yes, we’re talking about you, Jaguar and Spyker .

Why not create their own name in the F1 team? They can’t so the full speed HP engine. If they are going to team up, what are their contribution?

Formula one collaboration? That’s sounds great. So, what’s the result of teaming up?

IMO it should be put in VW name. Porsche is not that suitable and audi is more on street cars.

Are they going to used the technology of the v4 engine with twin turbo just like the ferrari’s new F1 engine?

wow collaboration of super cars.. pretty nasty does it?
