Do you want to help design the future of motorsports? Then you have come to the right place at Audi Formula Racing GmbH! In 2026, Audi wants to join the most demanding motorsport series, Formula 1, a global stage and high-tech development lab all in one. Our aim is to engage in sporting and technologically sustainable racing at the highest level of motorsports. The new technical regulations that come into effect in 2026 are based on significantly increased electrification and sustainable fuel. With “Vorsprung durch Technik”, we want to inspire our customers and fans worldwide.
In view of its future engagement in international motorsport, Audi Formula Racing GmbH is putting together a team to develop a high-performance drive system. As a  system developer for the Audi F1 power unit, you will network the E/E systems and ensure the complex functionality of the overall system in various test and operational environments. In return, we offer you an attractive package of benefits for maximum flexibility, personal development, attention to your health, and, above all, pleasure in what you do.
The combination of high performance and competition is what drives innovation and technology transfer. Take the leap into the highest level of motorsports and be a part of an ambitious team. Together, we will play an active role in shaping future technology at Audi and the transformation of Formula 1!


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.
