Fans of Volkswagen that are excitedly waiting for the decision on whether the company will enter the world of Formula One may not have to wait too long for that decision to come.

According to Motorsport, the German auto conglomerate has set a meeting for November to discuss the possibility of the brand to stamp its ticket to Formula One in the future.

The November meeting was revealed by no less than Hans-Joachim Stuck, a former racer that now serves as a motor sport representative for Volkswagen.
The rumors surrounding Volkswagen’s entry into Formula One have been attributed to changes in engine regulations that will be enforced in 2013. In the event that new regulations are implemented to make the competitive playing field a little more drawn out, Volkswagen or any of its subsidiary auto companies –Audi and Porsche come to mind – could be finding its way into the Formula One grid by then.

Whatever happens during this meeting in November – it’s widely assumed that Volkswagen will have a serious discussion regarding Formula One in this meeting – this developing news should bode well for fans of VW that have waited ages for their favorite brand to go wheel-to-wheel with some of the finest automakers in the planet in the wild and crazy world of Formula One.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I think it would be useless on the F1 race, if you’re engine is not that powerful similar to what VW have. Volkswagen is just wasting its time here!

Maybe there were confusion on the resolution of your monitor that is the reason why you didn’t like the paint scheme. It was totally different when you see a real one, I bet, you’ll change your mind once the actual car is being displayed infront of you.

Maybe they have a lot of things need to secure and I would agree with them to delay the Volks Formula One because you have to consider different aspects of production to organize such kind of event.
