Formula 1 | McLaren boss Brown on VW: “We had conversations”


Share post:

McLaren CEO Zak Brown has confirmed initial discussions with the Volkswagen Group regarding a possible collaboration in Formula 1. However, no agreement has yet been reached.

“I think they spoke to a handful of people in the paddock and we also had conversations,” Brown said in an interview with British media: “But in the short and medium term we are happy with our current situation.”

The traditional racing team is currently being supplied with engines by Mercedes, the current drive regulations will run until 2025. For the time after that there is speculation about a VW entry, such as the Audi and Porsche brands seem possible.

“We’re just waiting to see if they get into Formula 1, because that hasn’t been decided yet,” said Brown: “We still have a contract for the current phase. And of course we’ll then check where we stand and decide what we will do from 2026.”

While an Audi commitment has so far been associated primarily with McLaren, there are rumors of future cooperation with Red Bull with regard to Porsche. Only last week the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” reported on an imminent deal.
