Stefano Domenicali stated that the next month will be crucial to reach a possible deal with the Volkswagen Group to join F1 in 2026.
VW Group is on the verge of coming to Formula 1 in 2026, though no official decision has been made yet. The F1 CEO believes that they are a great group that works well. Therefore, he hopes they will make a decision soon.
“Getting involved would be great, but I can’t speak on behalf of VW. I was part of this incredible group for a few years and I know how hard they are working on the future,” he told F1-Insider.
“I hope they will make a decision soon. It was great that they were involved in the development of the new engine rules. Now it’s up to them to take the final step.”
