Allan McNish revealed the behind-the-scenes of Audi’s preparations for its Formula 1 entry.

Audi is set to join the F1 grid in 2026 when the new power unit regulation will come into effect. Later on, it was revealed that the German manufacturer will cooperate with Sauber.

McNish, who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Audi twice and was the team principal of Audi’s Formula E squad, spoke about behind-the-scenes.

“It’s been a very busy last 18 months, certainly in 2022 it was pretty much hectic like I’ve never seen it before,” he said on the Motorsport Magazine podcast.

“To think that 2026 is still quite a long way away, but it’s only around the corner. It’s 39 months until the first race, not that we’re counting!

“But being involved now for over 20 years with Audi, and this is part of that progression.

“It’s an exciting time, and I don’t think there’s anybody within the company that’s not looking forward to that first race in 2026.”
