Would you like to experience performance and help shape the future of motorsport? Then you are right with us. Sportiness is one of the core characteristics of the Audi brand, the genes for which come from more than 25 years of successfully operated motorsport. The goal of Audi Formula Racing GmbH is to operate sustainable racing at the highest level worldwide and to impressively present the performance of the brand to customers and fans.
Take the chance and influence our future sporting successes.

In the area of combustion engine development, you will work on the thermodynamic and mechanical development of a high-performance unit. It is your task in the exhaust gas turbocharging sub-area to develop the maximum performance and efficiency of the engine with the required reliability at the same time, both in the concept and design phase as well as in the commissioning and testing phase.
In close cooperation with the design department, you will plan and carry out 3D CFD simulations or test scopes on a wide variety of engine, component or drive train test benches. You will analyze the development results and then make appropriate suggestions for further development. With your commitment, you help ensure that the overall development of the drive unit achieves the required degree of maturity according to the schedule.


Audi Formula Racing GmbH is a subsidiary of Audi Sport and was founded in 2022 for the brand's entry into Formula 1. From 2026, the four rings will compete with a specially developed drive unit (“Power Unit”) and a works team in the globally popular FIA Formula 1 World Championship. In the future, the program will form the spearhead of Audi's factory motorsport commitment.
The power unit is developed in Audi Sport's state-of-the-art Motorsport Competence Center in Neuburg an der Donau, not far from the headquarters of AUDI AG in Ingolstadt. Opened in 2014, the location is considered one of the most modern of its kind and is currently undergoing extensive expansion for the F1 commitment. This is the first Formula 1 drive in Germany since 2009. The decisive factor here is the new regulations of the International Automobile Association FIA, which, among other things, provide for sustainable synthetic fuels from 2026 and will increase the electrical proportion of the hybrid drive unit to almost 50 percent. Audi wants to actively support the transformation of what is by far the most important motorsport series.
Globally known, highly emotional and technically highly developed - Formula 1 is a spectacular platform for the most demanding electrified racing vehicles in the world. Audi is taking up the challenge of proving “Vorsprung durch Technik” in this competitive environment and is putting together a highly specialized team to develop the power unit. Our basis for this is the diverse know-how from motorsport commitments such as Formula E, the Dakar Rally or the Le Mans era. Become part of the unique project in the premier class of motorsport and get involved when Audi writes the next chapter in its motorsport history.
