OUR TEAM

Welcome to the Audi F1 Project.
 
From 2026, Audi will compete in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
 
The new team has two locations. Audi's motorsport competence center in Neuburg (Germany) is considered one of the most modern of its kind in Europe. The Sauber Group's Formula 1 factory in Hinwil (Switzerland) is known for innovative technologies and passion for racing. The power unit comes from Neuburg, while Hinwil is responsible for the development of the chassis and race operations. The planned takeover by AUDI AG turns two teams into one factory team - and you can be part of it.
 
What should you bring with you? The mindset of an athlete. So if you are someone who never gives up and for whom limits are just something that needs to be overcome, then bring leadership through technology to Formula 1 with us. Become a part of the unique project and write motorsport history.  
 
The position for the Audi F1 Project is to be filled at Audi Formula Racing GmbH in Neuburg (Germany).

In the area of combustion engine development, you will work on the thermodynamics and mechanical development of a high-performance unit.

  • Analysis of test results and damage patterns as well as development of optimization measures in the area of the charging assembly

 

YOUR PROFILE

  • Technical studies in the field of mechanical engineering, automotive technology, fluid dynamics (Bachelor, Master, Diploma or Dr.-Ing.)
  • Several years of professional experience in the area of turbocharger design (thermodynamic testing and mechanical testing or simulations using 3D-CFD calculations) on high-performance combustion engines
  • Broad knowledge of engine technology with very good knowledge of engine testing, measurement technology and tribology
  • Experience operating hot gas test benches
  • Strong teamwork, organizational skills and a high sense of responsibility
