From 2026, Audi will enter the FIA Formula 1 World Championship with an internally developed power unit and a works team.
The power unit will be developed at Audi Sport's state-of-the-art Motorsport Competence Center in Neuburg an der Donau . This means a Formula 1 drive system will be made in Germany for the first time since 2009.

By entering the premier class of motorsports, Audi is taking on its greatest challenge to date when it comes to combining sustainability, innovation and optimum motorsport performance. Audi's decision was driven by the rule changes announced by the governing body of world motorsports, the FIA. From 2026, sustainable synthetic fuels will be required to be used and the electrical content of the hybrid power unit will be increased to almost 50 percent. Audi intends to actively support the transformation of what is by far the most important motorsport series. The power unit will be developed by more than 300 employees at the Neuburg an der Donau site. The Formula 1 program will spearhead Audi's works-based motorsport activities going forward.

Audi Formula Racing GmbH has been established as a wholly owned subsidiary of Audi Sport GmbH with responsibility for Audi's Formula 1 project. We are currently assembling a high-performance team to develop the power unit. Take the leap into the highest class of motorsports and be a part of Audi's journey as it writes the next chapter in its illustrious motorsport history! We are looking for experts in technical roles in particular.
